Wave of Light ...

Today is a special day

International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance.

Light a candle at 7pm for one hour to create a worldwide wave of light for 24hrs.
These candles burn brightly in memory of babies too precious for this earth.

Charlotte, Our tiny rose lent not given, to bud on Earth and bloom in Heaven.

She was cradled in my womb for six months, briefly in our arms and forever in our hearts.
Sleep sweet baby of ours in the Father's arms...till we hold you again.

Yesterday I wrote about my greatest loss being my greatest gain rainbow babies. After they arrived the magnitude of losing ~Charlotte~ hit harder than ever before. Knowing what I'd missed and would forever long for ...

Today I feel mixed emotions, guilt, love, sadness and joy....sadness my boys will never know a big sister and my husband & I raise a daughter.

Today my heart goes out to anyone reading this today who has said goodbye to their precious baby all too soon . Those stumbling along the path of grief after losing a precious baby(ies) or child.

I am sorry for your loss. I know words cannot ease your pain nothing ever will but tonight at 7pm I will light a candle in memory of our babies. Please pass the message along.

A quiet moment for lighting a candle in memory of your baby . . .

"Dear baby of mine, please see this light as a symbol of our never-ending love for you. Please understand that this love knows no limits or bounds; it conquers even the hold of death. Let this light shine in memory of our love for you, in celebration of the life we shared together, however brief, and in the hope that tomorrow will be a brighter day. We feel your spirit with us even now, gently guiding and strengthening us. With this light we will remember the true gifts of the season: memories of joys past, hope for present peace and love to last a lifetime. We will forever feel your presence and love you always."

Hope is like the sun,which, as we journey toward it ,casts the shadow of burden behind us.

It is my sincere wish that those touched by the loss of a baby are well supported, able to process their loss and hopeful for the future...(not my words but heartfelt wish)

Today at bible study I sat next to a woman with a 3 month old baby. The wee girl had eyes the same color as Brennan. Similar to the blue eyes my Riley has. I had to leave the room so she wouldn't see me burst into tears. Brennan's in heaven and Riley is leaving for the army Nov. second. I'm so emotionally fragile some days.

Love you.

I so love this idea of lighting a candle - it is something I can do and did on the Friday night. It was wonderful for me to stop and think of all those who have lost little cherubs and to be thankful.
