Special First Christmas Card & Some Thoughts

My First Christmas card came on Dec 1st. I was so excited since it was also the anniversary date of my last angel loss , 3 yrs ago. It was also from a BLM - Megan and it was handmade. Which always means so much that someone took the time to do something special. It is beautiful and sweet. I just love it and will always treasure it forever.

This road I walk isn't always a easy one. Life never is for anyone , you never know what a new day holds. I still thank God for everything that he blesses me with. Even on those dark days I know that there is a reason. Maybe I can't see the whole picture at first but I know that in trusting God , I will make it. I'm so thankful for so many BLM's and friends I have met through blogging. I have come a long way since I moved to Nevada. I have even got the chance to help some people just as so many have touched my life. I do want to let you know the young girl that I met one day while walking to get my children from school that had lost a baby , is doing well. She has been to our home a few times and she has started a blog. It is private because of her family right now. I got her connected with Faces of Loss , Faces of Hope. I feel good about it and to think how God had both us in the right place at the right time. I think to be that young and go through so much is hard. She is coming over to our home the day before Christmas. She has made a christmas ornament which is hanging on our tree. She didn't think she would be allowed to have it at her home which is sad. Hoping in time that will change for her and maybe her family can accept it and heal.

Last night Thaniqua asked me a question while I was cooking dinner. Mom do you think God was sad like we get (missing our children we lost) when he sent Jesus his only son to die ? At first I thought where do these children come up with these questions. I told her well I never thought about it like that. I told her I don't really know for sure but God was prolly happy to send his son so that we could live together forever in Heaven with him. We talked about it a bit more after dinner. I know she was thinking of how so many miss children they have lost. My sweet girl , I just love her so much all my kids. So precious to be so young and thoughtful.

Sorry this post was all over the place. Just lots of thoughts today.

What a beautiful card you got and how special it came on a day that was a sad one for you, Caroline. That is neat about the girl you talked with that time on walking to school. How neat she is part of your lives with coming over, etc. I am sure you are a big help with her as she goes through her grieving and sadness. That is so very special and kind of you to do, Caroline!

and my gosh, Thaniqua's question. I would have been the same way, where do you come up with these? But I think you gave a good answer.

What a sweet card of remembrance! I'm glad that you have helped someone else and it's so sad that she doesn't feel like she can be open with her family. Maybe one day she'll be able to. I hope that they will open their hearts.
