REMEMBERING

Yesterday was one of those days.
It started with some much needed scheduling.
We have lots of appointments coming up.
(to Dartmouth that is...)
And I'm a little behind in my calendering.
I wanted to get caught up.
So NOW...
I am finally getting to December.
(5 days late)
I ripped off November's sheet,
and threw it away.
When I returned,
this caught my eye...
This is Stevie's handwriting.
She was SO excited for this baby.
I didn't even know that she knew the due date.
It makes my heart hurt.
This month will be the hardest one.
It's a reminder of what's not to be.
We miss her....

So sorry, Becky. I know it is hard. Kadee is with the angels and will be watching over you during this special time of year. She will always be in your hearts. We love you. Aunt Shirley

Sorry Becky, try and focus on the positives, she is waiting for you, pleading your case to heavenly father and slipping you a few extra blessing through her special friends in heaven.

Jane said...

I am so sorry!! That just brought a tear to my eye.

I love knowing that I have angel babies in Heaven doing all they can to make sure we make it back together. And just think of the Joy we will have raising them.

Sending you big hugs!!

That's why you'll find the word and concept of 'remember' so often in the scriptures. It's an important one. Hugs to you, my sister.

Oh my sweet friend! My heart is tender for you...I hope you'll feel the love of Heavenly Father wrapped tightly around you this holiday season. She is so lucky to have you for her mother....

This month will be filled with bitter sweet reminders.
Love to you Becky!

I think Stevie's little reminder you found was another daughter saying hello. Treasure the moments you have to remember - love you! Amy Jo

I have been so busy that I haven't been very good about reading blogs. I've missed a lot. I'm sorry it was such a rough day and I know you'll miss your sweet little one this month. As always, you're in our thoughts and prayers.
And, as always, thanks for being such a great example of motherhood.

Okay, way to make me cry!! I did so well today, too. I miss Trevee, too. My kids were so excited and I think that that breaks my heart more than anything. My due date was hard. I knew it was coming, but now it has passed and maybe now I can start to really heal. I hope it will be the same for you. I am thinking of you and blowing big hugs and kisses your way.:)
