It’s crazy sometimes, this whole grieving process. I am 100% sure I’m stuck in a time warp now. My cousin Krista said it best a few months back…”welcome to time warp, it’s crazy…in a good and bad way!” Her son was also stillborn at birth over eight years ago so we relate to each other and I listen, take advice and trust everything she says when it comes to this aspect of our lives. She is wise 🙂
I feel as though it’s been forever since Naomi was born, yet the memory and images I have in my heart and mind are SO vivid and real and close. I tend to say this a lot, but you just can’t know what it’s like unless you’ve been through something like this. The good news? I’m in a good place right now emotionally and physically. I was sad during the month of December. Like, a lot and that’s OK. It’s good and it means I’m working through my grieving and moving forward. Being sad whenever I want is healthy for me.
Six months ago our lives changed in a tragic and unimaginable way. I am coming out stronger than I thought and I hope it continues as the years go by. Today I am sad and happy…all at once. I love you little girl. So much.
