Wow , I got to talk about our children and someone really listened. I was so happy because I'm not talking about our children that live on earth with me. I know wait a minute what could I possibly say about someone I never got the chance to meet.
A couple of months go we got a new landlord. She was nice but the past month I got the chance to talk to her. She seemed really friendly. I went in to pay our rent a month ago and she was decorating for Christmas. We chatted about decorations and so on. She asked me if I enjoyed being a Mom ?? Sorta seemed funny but this gang can be something else at times. She told me her husband was killed in a auto accident 11 yrs ago. I told her I was sorry. She told me she is excited because her son's wife is pregnant with a little boy , due in April 2011. She has other grandchildren but this will be the first one to carry on her husbands name. She told me her daughter in law lost a son early last yr. I told her I was sorry and she said it has been hard. I told her I really understand. I lost two children due to miscarriages. She said Wow , I could never tell but I know you sure love your kids. We talked , I told her about some websites I found comfort in. I took my new calander I ordered for Christmas from Carly that writes Names in the Sand. She looked at a few of the sites online and was really happy. Her daughter in law really is holding a lot in and thinks maybe this might really help her. Of course carrying her rainbow is bittersweet for all of them. Her son was born still at 37 wks , no problems just went to her appt and No Heartbeat. I'm going to get to meet her next weekend , I'm excited.
For a present our landlord bought her Grandson's name in the sand and a calander for her daughter in law. She even got one for herself. She thought what a beautiful way to help others in healing and to honor her son. I was just so happy I could share with someone and put a smile on her face.
