A Sincere & Heartfelt Thank You ♥

I just had to write this post to thank all of those who have been there for me over the past few weeks, sent me messages of support, tweets, left comments on the blog, rang me, text me and my beautiful pregnancy group ladies who put together a hamper for me, you're all angels. Today I was surprised even further when one of my lovely blog readers named Sharon went one step further and send me a beautiful handmade card to let me know that she was thinking of me and in it were some of the most beautiful words I have ever read. Sharon's sentiment really meant a lot to me and I actually cried whilst reading her card, not her intention at all but I was just so overwhelmed that she went out of her way to do this for me, especially as she's a busy mama and has a lot going on in her own life too. Included in her card was a beautiful charm which is something really special, it has hearts, baby footprints, angel wings, pearls and a big heart which says 'in loving memory', this overwhelmed me completely and I must admit I was a blubbering mess looking at it. For someone who has never met me to think about me and do this for me has really touched my heart. Sharon is a beautiful person inside and out and I am honoured to know someone like her. When I began my little blog I never even dreamed that people would read my stories, thoughts, opinions, communicate with me and take an interest in my life but I'm delighted to have been proved wrong and met the most wonderful people through the blogging community, not only in Ireland but in other parts of the world too.

I'm sharing a little poem from Sharon's card to me and I hope she won't mind as I think these words can resonate with any parent who has lost a child too soon -

The world may never notice if a rosebud doesn't bloom,
Or even pause to wonder if the petals fall to soon,
But every life that ever forms,
Or ever comes to be, 
Touches the world in some small way for all eternity.
The little one you longed for,
Was swiftly here and gone,
But the love that was then planted is a light that still shines on.
And though they're not here with you,
Your hearts know what to do,
Every beating of your heart says,
"I will remember you".

This words are of some comfort to me, they describe completely how I feel about our little baby D. Thank you so much to the wonderful Sharon and to everyone else who thought of me too, what a fantastic feeling it is to be surrounded by the most amazing souls.

  4. I am so sorry for your loss, we lost our little girl at 20 weeks in June 2011 and not a day goes by when I don't think of her. The words in that poem brought a tear to my eye. Hope you are doing as well as can be expected xx

  5. I'm glad the poem brought you some comfort, I can't imagine how it feels to lose a child and I think that there is still a big taboo surrounding miscarriage, it can be dismissed sometimes. Just wanted to let you know that I definitely don't think it's something to be dismissed, it's something to be remembered and honoured. Take care xx

  20. What a lovely thing for her to do, when I had a miscarriage in 2005 very few people acknowledged it as a real loss and I really struggled with that because to me it was a very much wanted and much loved baby that I had lost. I'm so glad to see attitudes have changed.

    I'm so very sorry for your loss xx
