I follow a lot of blogs nowadays, fellow mothers of dead babies, what a great group to be a part of...not. I follow one blog that is called "Still Life 365." It is a collaborative art blog, a "year of art by mothers, fathers and family members grieving babies." Todays post was a very simplistic yet beautiful acrylic painting. The words painted on it were what struck me most:
I have never thought of your life or death this way but wow, truer words have never been spoken. I truly did hold you for every second of your life. For almost 5 months it was you and me baby, you knew me inside and out, I just wish I could have known you the same way. I do feel blessed that you knew me, your mommy, for your whole life and you lived a beautiful, comfortable and loving life in my womb. For that I am so thankful.
