Happy Birthday Baby Girl!! I can't believe it's been a whole year that you've been up there. I love remembering when you were kicking away in my tummy and you went with us everywhere. I wish you would have been with us today on the polar express train with your brother and eating cupcakes with us. But I know you've been having the best birthday anyone could have up there. I love you so much and I hope you know it.
"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
