Our Tree is Dead

My husband was very kind to me this year. He let me buy our tree on December 4th. Yup, that's a full 3-weeks before Christmas Day. But I have been feeling sad this season and he knew the lights would cheer me up. So, Saturday he spent the day untangling lights and running extension cords while the two kids "helped" - Connor tasted the lights to make sure they weren't dusty and Lainy Ann played jump rope. It was great fun.

So, Your Friend Just Lost her Child (Infant or Pregnancy loss)

It is a terrible club to belong too. No one wants to be a part of it - especially when they thought they were joining the club of motherhood, sleepless nights, and wet kisses. But some women have become the mothers of 'sleeping babies' forever sleeping, never to waken and give a cry. Never to show their personality or aspirations.

My Grief Resource Center

In the few months that I have lost my boys I have found myself reaching out to other mothers and sometimes fathers explaining to them the process of grief, how to get help, and good resources. Each time I send this information out I have to find it again. Instead, I am going to compile that information here so I can simply post this link into emails and message board posts to help those that are struggling through those first few days and weeks of painful grief.
