Thank You, Blog Fam

Friday, February 25, 2011

I struggle to find the words to express my gratitude to all of you who left comments and emailed me after I revealed my miscarriage on this blog. I was not expecting the avalanche of well wishes that I received. The outpouring of support, especially from the mom blogging community, provided me with a great deal of comfort and solace during what could have been very lonely time. It was like getting hugged by a hundred arms.

I cannot thank you all enough.

On a brighter note, I am finally regaining my balance after feeling like I was falling in a bottomless pit for days. I watched American Idol on Wednesday and found myself making fun of Jennifer Lopez and her melodrama. That's when I knew I'd be alright. It's true that time and laughter heals all wounds. The pain in my heart remains, but it's more like a dull ache than the crippling heart attack it was last week. I still cry at pregnancy test commercials, but I am no longer sad all the time.

I have been thinking a lot about how I can memorialize my angel baby and give myself some closure. Right now I am leaning toward a small tattoo. What do you think?

Your suggestions, like your condolences, mean a lot to me.

Hi Teresha, so happy you're feeling some comfort. When I volunteered with a crisis pregnancy center in our training women talked about planting a tree.

I was tripping on Jennifer too. Save me the drama Mama! Sheesh

So glad you're back to writing and finding some levity in life. Cause J Lo's crying spell was Hi Larious!!

I think a small tattoo is a lovely memorial, your angel baby will always be in your heart, but then would literally be a part of your very skin. There is a day of remembrance too in October for those who have miscarried and lost babies, that seems to be really helpful to my friends that have suffered a loss as well.

Love and light to you, Damon and Miss Marlie!

I am so glad you are feeling better! Like I said before, we suffered 3 miscarriages before we were blessed with our babies. So many people don't understand the pain of that loss, and it's one that I am so sorry you're now experiencing. I think that a tattoo is a wonderful idea. What we did for our 3 losses was that we created personalized "garden stones" with Angel Baby and date for all 3, and we planted a tree for each baby. I hope you continue to heal. The pain will always be there, but it does get easier, I promise! Hugs!

Sorry I'm so behind on this, we've been so overwhelmed with this particular cold. I think a small tattoo would a wonderful way to memorialize your baby! I'm glad that you're feeling some better.
