Today was certainly not one of the easier days to get through. I started reading a book called “I Will Carry You” by Angie Smith. It is an account of one family’s journey through the loss of an infant daughter at birth. (The same people that wrote the song of the same title mentioned in a previous post.) While beautifully and eloquently written, it is gut wrenching to read. I think I would be ugly crying if I were reading it outside of these circumstances. I’ve decided to put that one down, at least for awhile. Someday I’ll be ready for it, but not just yet.
This morning a dear friend of mine stopped by with coffee and a little something for me. The little something turned out to be a gorgeous knitted (crocheted?) baby blanket that a friend of hers had made for Baby. I was so touched by the benevolence of a complete stranger. If you’re reading this, Thank You!! 🙂
If anything, this tragedy has brought forth so many precious people, even a few new friendships. William and I are so blessed to not have to walk this dark road alone. I can’t possibly thank you enough for your love and encouragement. Even the people we don’t know personally, but who care enough to follow along through this blog, thank you. Please know that we cherish each and every one of your comments even if we haven’t directly responded.
Tomorrow is a new day. I’m thankful to have made it through this one! God bless!
