Life Is Just So Daily

"Mommy"



"Mommy". Quite possibly the first word a little boy will say, the beginning of a lifelong conversation with his mother. In between childhood and adulthood many words will pass between a mother and a son, some in love, some in anger, some in sadness, and others in joy. Their bond will forever affect the way he'll view women. But it's in a mother's eyes that a son will remain forever young -- and forever cherished.
~ from a description of the book Mothers & Sons, A Celebration in Memoirs, Stories, and Photographs by Jill Morgan



Today is October 15th, Pregnancy & Infant Loss Rememberance Day. I don't need a special day each year to miss Masyn, but it's nice to have a day just to recognize our situation, because we're not alone. It's been almost 15 months now since our pregnancy ended. Our life as a family has gone on. I trust that there is a plan for us, and that for now---this is the plan. A mommy, a daddy, and a son. For now, this is us. And although at times I still struggle with the understanding of our loss of Masyn & all that we missed out on---today I'm going to try to focus on my blessings, the blessing of my son, and the great privelege it is to just get to be his mom.

Sending you lots of love and support. Yes, I agree, it is sad to have such a loss, it is good to have a day when we all know that we are not alone.

God Bless.

I love your attitude! I can only imagine how hard it is to lose a little one but it shows great strength to be able to be thankful for what you do have even when you've lost something or someone that is so important.
Thanks for welcoming me to the blogging world! It was kind of you to take time to say hi!

Ah Lainey, been thinking of you lots. I want you to know that I wrote Masyn's name on one of the balloons I released at our Walk to Remember. I hope you don't mind, I was just thinking of you and so many of my friends who have lost their sweet babes.
Hold your little boy tight, fill your nose with his sweet boy smell today.
take care,
K
