Sorrow

I just learned that a family  I “know” through blogging has lost their baby girl tonight.

I’ve spent most of the day in my head and wondering why I can’t ever feel right, even when everything around me is going well.  Then I hear this news and I feel sick to my stomach.

I feel sick because a poor innocent child who has struggled for her whole short life has lost her battle.  I feel sick for the mother who had to watch her tiny, frail child breathe her last breath.  I feel sick because I have beautiful, healthy, happy children and I am ruminating on small and insignificant things and feeling miserable about it.

I can even begin to imagine the pain that these parents are feeling.  Their baby was only 3 weeks younger than my baby E.  Tonight I rocked him to sleep and kissed his forehead good night.  Tonight that mother held her baby for the last time and kissed her forehead good-bye.

  1. my condolences to your friend and her family. there are no words to really say, accept, we must be thankful for every day we have and are blessed with all that we have. I could not imagine being a mother and losing a child – i could not. this would be my worst fear – my heart goes out to her.

  2. This really hits a sore spot. It is my biggest fear to lose my child. My parents lost their child when he was just three months old. My mother held her child and she remembers very well that a single tear dropped from his eye and he died. Ill never forget that it haunts me to this day. I have lived in the shadow of my mothers grief. Thank you for sharing.
