Sadness

I good friend of  mine from college lost a baby this week. She had already had all her showers.  I am not sure exactly how far along she was, but pretty far.  I had been feeling the usual feelings of happiness for her and sadness that we weren't there.  This is what she posted on FB:

"Baby "B" went to meet Jesus this week. We don't understand why, but we will always cherish her as our beautiful baby girl. She entered the world weighing 5lb. 10 oz. and measuring twenty-one and a quarter inches. She is at peace and is dancing at the feet of Jesus."
This girl has always been an admirable person.  She is so strong in her faith.  I am praying that I can have this faith.  Please pray for my friends at this time.  Seeing this sent my mind reeling and my heart just broke.

  4. keeping your friend in my thoughts. It's ironic, my husband just went to see his regular doctor this week before she left to go on maternity leave. Turned out she lost the baby at 6 months. Having gone through it himself, he was able to reach out to her and be real... it's so hard to do sometimes; miscarriages are not talked about openly it seems.
