Spring is a good time for healing. The awakening of the world is a reminder that there is hope for beautiful things after the bitter, dark cold.
The last few months have been quite an emotional ride for us. We found out we were pregnant with our second baby and we were over the moon excited. Dancing, smiling, laughing…that much excitement.
Then at 9 weeks pregnant, I lost that sweet little soul. That experience has been one of the hardest and most emotionally complex I could have ever imagined.
The feeling of being pregnant one day and then the next day… not. Yet there's no baby to hold and love. The tiny life that was growing inside is just gone. That is probably one of the most raw feelings I've ever felt.
Through the love of our family, friends, our sweet sweet girl and the silly dogs, we've been slowly healing.
This past week the sun has come out and warmed the ground. And for the first time I am feeling some sense that eventually things will be okay. Everything happens for a reason, and perhaps I'm one day closer to understanding what that is.
I can say though that I do feel hope and I do know we're so blessed.
Enjoy the sunshine today.
