On Friday, April 26 I was scheduled to have an ultrasound to look at our baby for the first time. I had asked my aunt to cancel this appointment earlier in the week after finding out the previous Friday I was having a miscarriage. So on this Friday I was feeling down thinking how I would have loved to be at the office seeing our baby and wondering why this was happening to us again. I went to check the mail and had a box in the mail box. It was from my cousin. Enclosed was a card with a wonderfully touching message. Then my cousin had written something that has stuck with me every day since....
Just a reminder to keep doing the things you love to do.
Along with the card she had put in a package of pens and several boxes of note cards. She knows I love to send cards and how much I love colorful pens.
This has been a part of my healing as I have realized how important it is for me to continue doing things I love even though my heart has been hurting. Taking each day a step at a time has helped me see that I can still enjoy the things I like to do and that it is important to do them and not just stay home and do nothing (which is what I felt like doing the first few weeks).
I truly believe it has helped me in my grief process to remember this every single day, and I'm thankful for my cousin for this sweet reminder.
Have a day of blessings!
