Saying Goodbye

(After a weekend of bleeding, yesterday in the hospital, I found out that I had lost my baby. I was nine weeks pregnant. I'm trying to sort out my feelings a little.)

I'm saying good-bye to someone I never knew.

I'm not ready to ask God "why?"

My heart is comforted by the little warm bodies that come and visit me in bed as I rest and recover. I'm so thankful for my healthy, perfect children.

I've been crying off and on all day.

Jesus, could you give my baby one kiss from Mommy? Please hold my baby close for a while and I will one day be there to hug and hold my little one.

I'm sorry for the loss Lisa. I lost one years ago as well. Just rest, let yourself cry, knowing that He understands and knows all things.

Bless you today Hugs.

My thoughts and prayers are with you, your husband, and the rest of your family. May you be able to rest in HIM.

I will be praying for you today Lisa. I lost 2 little ones and I know they are safe and that I WILL see them some day. They just got there before me. :o)

Allow yourself time to cry and say goodbye. Hold your other little ones close - allow Jesus to hold you close too. He knows your heart.
