I was told grieving is good.
Today my sweet baby would have been 9 months old.
A wave of grief has washed over me and I could not continue at work today. I wanted to stay busy and came to work as usual but as the day went I broke down too many times and therefore sat down with our grief counselor that works there. She spent a good portion of the afternoon with me and shared in my grief. I am also thankful for Tish, a lady who works there who lost her little one 10 years ago. SHe says many kind words and gives helpful hugs.
I am thankful for all those who have shared my grief as well. Nikki, Amber Capobianco, Stephanie Burton, Laurie Priest, Shelly,Lilah, Elizabeth Neal, Vi ( a lady who lost her baby girl 60 years ago and still had tears!). . . They have all lost babies as well. They have listened to me kindly.
I Am most thankful for the best husband ever, who holds me and comforts me like no chocolate ever could :)
I would love prayers as I battle this.....
and for those of you who have never lost a baby. . . be careful what you say to those who have. It's not just an "issue" that we will one day "get OVER". SO don't tell me to get over it! God forbid(TRULY) that you ever have to go through it!
And if you have lost a baby or had a miscarriage Don't tell me that you are stronger than me and Don't tell me that "if you hadn't lost that baby you wouldn't have had this other one". You have no place to compare babies like that.....
