Just Remembering...

I have been thinking of my son who passed this summer. I know it is rather unusual to post about sad things on a blog, but I just wanted to remember Chase on this day - 9 months today. He is still a part of our thoughts everyday. We miss you little guy more than words can say. You are now our guardian angel watching over us.
I know there are people out there who have lost children, and I have to say that http://www.silentgrief.com/ has been such a blessing to me. It is a board I hope no one has to join but it is there for people who have had the unthinkable happen.

On Hope

Hope is a rare gift that if we are lucky, comes to us with the power to heal our lives. I've come to know that the deepest sense of hope often springs from the hardest lessons in life. It is in the darkest skies that stars are best seen.. perhaps it is divine irony that within the darkest moments we are capable of revealing the greatest light, demonstrating what is best with humanity.

Hi Heidi

thanks for visiting my blog! I just wanted to say that I am sorry for your loss. I know how that changes a person..both my brother and my husband's sister have lost a baby.

Chase is an important part of your life as a family. I'm glad you publicly remembered him.

And God bless your family. thank you for your husband's service to our country.

Thanks Sheri for your post. I appreciate it. After I posted this I thought maybe I shouldn't.. but you know it is a part of our lives and it is therapeutic for me to share the real side of everything in this process.

Take care, Heidi
