I didn't forget you baby. In fact you're always on my mind. I've loved you from the beginning. And will love you til the end. Wanted to stop to remember you but life got in the way. I'm still thinking of you today and always. It wasn't that we weren't thinking of you we had a party planned. In my mind balloons were going up this time in a very special place. Your brothers would send up all the sweet birthday things as thoughts in our head. But life got in the way. We all were sick and couldn't get out to give you the party you deserve. Don't worry it's just postponed for a while until we can make it to that special place where kids play carefree and mountains shoot up to the heavens.
"There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief...and unspeakable love." - Washington Irving
"Yesterday is history.Tomorrow is a mystery.Today is a gift.That is why they call it the present."- Eleanor Roosevelt
"God is not ashamed of human lowliness. He enters right into it. He chooses a human being to be His instrument and works His wonders where they are least expected." -Dietrich Bonhoeffer
At 26 1/2 weeks pregnant I noticed that our baby Gracie wasn't kicking. Her heart wasn't beating anymore and she went on to be with Jesus in heaven. She came December 10, 2009, already in heaven. Then January 2, 2011, at 10 weeks, we lost Snowflake to a miscarriage.
.......To live with the conscious knowledge of the shadow of uncertainty, with the knowledge that disaster or tragedy could strike at any time; to be afraid and to know and acknowledge your fear, and still to live creatively and with unstinting love: that is to live with Grace. Peter Henry Abrahams
