In honor

"A month ago yesterday I found out that my baby no longer had a heart beat. Today I would have been 14 weeks pregnant. I'm not sad today. In fact, I have a peace about me. As I exited my front door for work this morning, I just smiled as I looked at my flower bed. My mother bought me a hydrangea bush right after the loss. I planted it, and I've watered it, it has bloomed, and it is beautiful. Only this morning did I make a connection that this bush was in honor of my baby, and it made me so happy to see the beautiful blooms. My 'baby bush' is such a blessing to me.

I've received several blessings this week. A special gift arrived in the mail from my sweet bloggy friend Shanny Thanks Girl! Another, worthy of mention, blessing happened this morning. On my way to work, a truck ran a stop sign and came within a foot of hitting me on the driver side. Not an ugly word escaped my lips! I was really angry for a minute, but I quickly changed to being so thankful. The words that escaped my lips were, 'Thank you God!' I'm alive!


  1. What an inspiring post and beautiful hydrangea.

  2. Amen! We become so grateful and thankful along this continues to teach me so much.

    So happy you feel peace today and I pray that feeling lives on :)

    HUGS and Have a wonderful weekend

  3. Awww it bloomed beautifully!!!

    Wow, it truly is a blessing that the truck stopped on time! How scary! Thank you God indeed! I'm so glad to read you are ok and that you got the gift =)
