The One About New Life & Losses

I'm seeing green this morning... but not with envy. I'm actually seeing green. It's beautiful and so bright! Amazing what one night of rain will bring out in the springtime. I'm so excited to see the leaves really be leaves already. It's sooo nice (Not to mention it adds extra privacy from the neighbors.) AND I'm really hoping it'll help my flowers come up. I planted a flower garden this year and I'm hoping it does well.

Today marks the fourth anniversary of my first loss. It's hard to believe it's been 4 years already!! The baby was due in December and would have turned 3 this past December. That loss was such a shock after having 3 healthy babies... but the one I had in August of that year was even more of a shock. Crazy to think about... and what a beautiful, beautiful day to remember my little one w/ all the new life around.

Today I get to go run errands alone with all 5 children. Should be fun...

I always forget the actual days of your losses but I hope you know that doesn't mean I don't care. I know how heartbreaking and bittersweet they are. We wouldn't be who we are today if they hadn't happened and we wouldn't have our new little ones either. Heck, you and I probably wouldn't even be friends! God works in very, very mysterious ways.
