Country music singer-songwriter Granger Smith's family was given a very priceless gift by some very thoughtful people. More here...

Country music star Granger Smith’s family was given a precious gift from the family that purchased their former home. As fans know, Granger and wife Amber‘s 3-year-old son, River, passed away in June due to a drowning accident in the family’s pool. After tragically losing River, the family decided to sell their property and relocate a few months later. Fast forward to present day and they family got a very meaningful surprise…

“We were just given such a special gift,” Amber shared via social media, along with a snapshot of her three children’s growth chart. “We knew when we sold our home that we sold it to a wonderful family. I took photos of these growth measurements before we moved out. I thought the new owners would just paint over them and I wanted the memory. The sweet owners just dropped these off with Granger.”

We were just given such a special gift. We knew when we sold our home that we sold it to a wonderful family. I took photos of these growth measurements before we moved out. I thought, the new owners would just paint over them and I wanted the memory. The sweet owners just dropped these off with Granger. They took the time to take them carefully off the garage wall and bring them to us so we would have them 😭. 2 years and 11 months was the last time we measured Riv. 3 months later we moved. Grateful for kind, thoughtful people, and treasures I thought were gone… And I’m really missing my little Valentine hunk. 💔❤️

Oh goodness, this just hits you right in the emotions. This family has been so strong and we can’t even imagine the pain they have experienced over the past eight months. Granger and Amber, along with their son Lincoln and daughter London, have been so candid and open as they all work to heal and honor River’s memory.

“8 months since I kissed his sweet face. Struggling this week. All the emotions – anger, sadness, fear and joy sprinkled in (Inside Out anyone?) Doesn’t help that I’m not feeling my best. Thanks cedar 😷. Being run down just feeds into the sadness. Digging into my devotionals and the word, but honestly, sometimes you just have to be present and sit in the suck for a little bit, feel it and then pick back up again,” Amber shared this week via Instagram.

8 months since I kissed his sweet face. Struggling this week. All the emotions – anger, sadness, fear and joy sprinkled in (Inside Out anyone?) Doesn’t help that I’m not feeling my best. Thanks cedar 😷. Being run down just feeds into the sadness. Digging into my devotionals and the word, but honestly, sometimes you just have to be present and sit in the suck for a little bit, feel it and then pick back up again. I’m reading a new book called Option B. We are all living some sort of option B. We can’t always have our option A, with perfect little lives and joy all the time, so we have to “kick the crap out of Option B” and sometimes C or D. God will work all things out for good. I felt God so closely for the last few months. I feel like he’s been a little more silent lately but I’m ok with that. I mean he was silent for 400 years. I think I can handle a few days or weeks. “Even when I don’t see it, you’re working, even when I don’t feel it you’re working”. Someone also said in bible study this week, “we are so lucky because we have God’s word. Even when we feel like he’s silent, he’s not. We can read his word, he’s always speaking to us.” I love that. I’m resting in that. 🙏🏼
