Healing Moments

I've posted a new entry on Healing Moments. Before you jump over and read it, let me warn you about a few things.

1. It's long.
2. It's emotional.
3. It contains an incident that might distress you. Please know that I am no longer at that point, haven't been at that point since the incident, and with God's help, I'll never be at that point again.

If you want to read it, go for it. If not, don't! :) I'll still write in here later.

But the next month might be emotional, and I might use Healing Moments a lot. We're entering a crazy time. Only five more weeks til the scheduled C section! And it's the anniversary of what we went through with Henry. And though I'll be doing my best to celebrate life, I know that there will be moments that my anger and sadness need to come out, need to be acknowledged. So be prepared.

Jenette,

I just wanted to let you know that I think about you, Aaron, Ethan, and Henry all the time. Mostly when we have someone come in to deliver a baby that has died inutero. I always say a little prayer for you all and think how special it is to have a an angle to watch over all of you. Henry probably asked God to send you your little girl so that you wouldn't miss him so much but at the same time that you would always carry a special place in your heart for him. I will be praying much harder for you as you enter these last weeks. I pray that this may be the sun shinning behind the dark clouds that loom. Know that Henry hand pick her to be with you even though he could was called back to heaven. Have strength knowing that you will be able to tell her how Henry helped to hand pick her from all the others for God to give you and what a special blessing she is as your third child. Know that God won't give us anything that we can't handle for he know us like no other. Remember that through the rough times he has carried you for you were too weak to walk. He loved us so much that he gave us his only Son to heal us. May he bless you so much through the upcoming weeks that your heart may explode with all his love. God Bless you Jenette. Love you. Faith

After reading both posts, I feel so terrible because I did such a horrible job of keeping in touch and being there for both of you. I hope you are able to forgive me and I hope I can do a better job in the weeks and months ahead. I know you know this, but if there's ever anything I can do for you - just ask!

By the way, I also owe you a huge thanks. Reading your posts really helps me put my own life into perspective. I definitely needed that. I just wish the circumstances providing me with the needed perspective were much different. I am so glad that things are going well at the moment though. I hope they continue and even improve.

By the way, and I know you also know this, I do believe you have previously stated that I do serve the valuble purpose of providing comic relief. So if these services are ever needed, feel free to take advantage of me...er I mean them.

Have a great weekend!

I'm here for you. I'm sorry for your struggle. But, you are so strong to overcome it. I truely feel you have moved on. I'll be there to make you laugh through the hard times and cry too of course.

Jenette,

I haven't checked out your blog in a long time, and I am so glad that I felt compelled to do so tonight.

I am so grateful to you for sharing your Healing Moments and Musings.

Your words, thoughts, and experiences are beyond moving. I hope writing them down is cathartic and healing for you, and I hope that as you work through all of your feelings, you will find peace. (as much peace as a new mom of 2 can find, mind you... ;) *giggle*)

I'm so glad to know you, girl. I liked you the instant we met, and I am so grateful to call you friend. You are a blessing, Jenette. You know where to find me if you need a body part to be lent or leaned on. *grin*
