It seems like this week has been a strange flood of tears and heartache around this baby lost community. In big and very devastating ways, and in some smaller, unexpected ways.

I wrote this a while back. It is the end of a poem I wrote on Jenna’s blog, that has been on my heart a lot, especially this week. I was telling Pete yesterday that I just missed her. And I know so many of us can relate. I just miss her.

But someday when I die, Lord,
You tell me that you knew
You didn’t let my tears dry up on the ground,
You kept them close to you.
In that bottle where our tears our stored
To show us just how much you cared
You saw me cry every time I convinced myself

that nobody knew…

It brought me tremendous comfort that He stores all our tears…

Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?

Psalms 56:8

I have created a few cards surrounding the remembrance of tears. The card site is not live yet, but Carly and I are working hard on it. We very much look forward to sharing it with all of you.

For each of you suffering new losses and anniversaries, I am deeply deeply heartbroken for you.

    I have been away from this community for so long but everyone is in my prayers always. For me, I miss my little girl too. But I’m not sure if that “miss” is missing her or missing what should have been. if that makes any sense at all. Anyways, think of you and Jenna….always.
