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 knewYou didn’t let my tears dry up on the ground,You kept them close to you.In that bottle where our tears our storedTo show us just how much you caredYou 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?
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.
