Baby remembrances

I wanted to share these things I have received that are in memory of our baby. My heart has been so touched by the people giving these to me at our time of grief. 

First is a handkerchief.  I received this from a fellow blogger named Debby I "met" through Wednesday Hodgepodge.  She read my story and asked if she could send me a handkerchief.  Such a nice ministry I thought and this was nice to receive in the mail. I liked also that the lettering was purple, my favorite color. :) 

Next is a memorial afghan.  This was from my online friend I've never met in real life but have known for many years now.  She sent me one for my first loss too and also made a big afghan for Caleb and my Meemaw.  She is such a sweet encouraging lady, and I'm thankful for her friendship and kindness.  Such a sweet little memorial blanket and so soft.

My aunt gave me this cross necklace.  It is called a Trinity Cross.  I have never seen one like this before.   It came with a little card describing what it means.  You can read a similar description on the website. This is special on so many levels for me.  I wore it on Mother's Day and liked hearing the three pieces bump together.

Finally is the afghan my Mom made.  She started it right after we told her we were pregnant.  I saw a pattern online somewhere, and Caleb chose for this one to be light green.  Since she had it started, she finished it, and it goes in the memorial box at her house with the white one she made for our first baby (Caleb's baby afghan is yellow).   You can't really tell it is green in this picture she sent me.  She showed me she had it finished the last time we were at her house, and it brought tears to my eyes.

I will always cherish these things and remember our baby with them.

Have a day of blessings!
