One Year

I just wanted to take a moment to make note that it has been one year today since we had our miscarriage. It is amazing how much can change in a year. Although the experience is still something that I look on as being difficult, I can now see how the experience has shaped my life in positive ways. I have much to be thankful for today! However, I still believe there is a room in heaven full of rocking chairs for rocking all of the babies that did not get to be rocked here on earth, and I fully intend to park myself there when the time comes! May I never forget just how truly precious and fragile life can be.


  1. Thinking of you today....bless you for these thoughts!

  2. This post brought tears to my eyes, that is a beautiful way to think of it. I miscarried in Feb of 2009 and this year in Feb was blessed with my first son. It is bittersweet because I can't imagine my life without Coltrane but still think about the one I lost.

  3. Thank you so much for your sweet comment! I know exactly what you mean... It's funny, I used "bittersweet" when I was talking to a friend this week who miscarried to describe my subsequent pregnancy with John. Such an odd club that I have found myself apart of....but I can definitely say it has taught me some valuable lessons....and, like you, without that pain I would not have John. :)
