Heavy Heart

My mind and thoughts have been consumed heavily with
Natalie, Richie, and their sweet family this week.

There are lots of things I need to blog.
Lots of things to tell you about.
But all of those seem so insignificant.

It has been difficult to think of anything but them.

While I hope to never understand fully what they are feeling, I do know my own personal hell in the loss of our baby almost two years ago. Perhaps this is why Nat is on my mind continually.

Even then I can't imagine loving and holding and kissing your baby
and then to have to let him go.

I have been hugging my three babies close to me, we have been cuddling on the couch more, playing more games, and taking the time to truly cherish all of our blessings.
I hope you are doing the same.

We know and understand that life is precious.
How thankful we are for a plan that will allow us to all be reunited with those we love.

I ask for your continued love and prayers and support to this sweet family.

I am taking the weekend off from blogging and e-mail,
to truly enjoy the blessings I have.

Until Monday.

All my love.

I'm glad you are taking a break, you deserve it. You are truly an example of, 'mourning with those that mourn.' You have empathy and you are so willing to give of yourself.

kudos, love.

take care of yourself, and yes, love on those beautiful babies you've got. :)

I don't even know this wonderful family and my heart is mourning for them. I pray that the spirit will stay with them, to offer comfort and understanding. I had quite a bit of time to think last night while I was up with my own little one. It's times like this that really do open your eyes to how important our relationships are with those we love really are. I am with you Kim I resolve to give a little more time and show a lot more love. Thank you so much for being such a wonderful example to me and those around you. You are truly a wonderful and very special woman.

Oh my goodness Kim, I hadn't read that story about your miscarriage on your blog before. We have a lot to talk about... I, too, miscarried my first at 16 weeks and my story is somewhat similar. man oh man, no one really understands what you go through till they experience it themselves.

So, I have been very emotional with this thing with Natalie too. It strikes a chord with me. So sad.

But yeah, we should talk sometime...

I am with you. Toby and I have both been thinking about this a lot. We feel awful for them and it also brings back some terrible memories for us - as well as fears about the blessings we do have. There's been lots more cuddle time here too.
