About Me

I am a momma of 6 :) I have one grand-daughter who is 2 and a half and one who is 9 months!!...my youngest son is 6 months younger than the older one and 1 year older than the baby :) We homeschool and we are always on the go! I like to joke and say we are "addicted to chaos"! Long story short - we are parents of kiddos every age imaginable (almost) and like everyone else...We're learning as we go along! Thank the Lord...He's forgiving and LOVING - 'cause we're truly undeserving of all the wonderful gifts He's given to us!

~ Little angels ~

Today a dear family is mourning the loss of a pregnancy. Of a baby. Of a sibling.
Does anyone TRULY get over this? I don't think so. I think we may grow stronger....maybe we grow softer too - so that when we tell someone we understand...sadly we really really do.....
Our family has experienced this twice. It is heart shattering (Yes..even when we have "so many")and it leaves a part of you gasping for air..always..
I know that the things I wanted to hear were the same exact things I DID NOT WANT TO HEAR.
"it will be okay" "you can try again" "I'm sorry"
It doesn't make it better, but when people said nothing - it was somehow worse.
All I can say is that it takes time. (lame sounding I know)
time to "survive" really. You don't feel like anything is the same yet somehow you do survive. You hold your loved ones near and dear and attempt to comprehend "how and why" when often there are just no answers for that.
My prayers go out to all who are dealing with this today...or yesterday...or last year or 10 years ago. - The mommas, the daddys, you families who are aching.
I send you love and pray for blessings of healing for your hearts

With all of my heart~


  1. I read her post too thins morning! So sad! My heart and prayers goes to her and the family!

    My tomorrows post is about miscarriage, this week the one that we never met will have turn one, so I wrote about it!
    How I feel, what I've learn etc...

  2. That is heartbreaking, I am so sorry for your friend and her family! They are in my prayers!

  3. Here is a ten part blog post on how to help a grieving friend and dealing with a loss of a baby. http://mollypiper.com/2008/03/how-to-help-your-grieving-friend/ I think it's good but I have also never had to experience this.. I can't imagine. My heart hurts for the woman that have every time I think about it.

  4. I have six "treasures" waiting for me in heaven so far. A friend shared a thought with me several years ago as I was experiencing another pregnancy loss that really comforted my heart. She said that she imagined that the Lord had a special purpose for these babies and because we had been willing to conceive, there was one more soul around the Throne to worship Him.

  5. I also read her post. This situation is always difficult because I feel like I never have the right words. Some people think that this is not a real loss, but it is. It is devastating and involves real grieving. My heart goes out to every family who experiences this.

  6. Yes. You're so right. The one we've lost will greet theirs in heaven. I pray healing for them.
