It's sad that your story is all too familiar. It's amazing how time passes after we lose our babies. It seems that the fabric of time becomes thin. Sometimes it seems that I had my son in another lifetime and other times I can't believe he was born a whole year ago. I pray that you find comfort during this hard period and I hope that the things you are planning to do will bring some peace and joy into your life.

Thanks so much ladies, for your kindness and support during
this time. I have been planning a few things that I will later
share. I am also sending in a donation gift to the PF. I'm so
grateful because without it I wouldn't have "met" you all and had this tremendous support system that kept me sane for a long time
after my baby's death...

Gossamer- You are right. Sometimes I have these- What If moments
and I imagine how my baby would be at this time. My life sure
would be a lot different![:)][V]

Thank you ladies once again! I'll keep you updated.

Gloria, you are in my thoughts. This is such a tough time of year for people like us, and you have to deal with the anniversaries on top of that. I think your idea to take it easy and just do what feels right to you is a wise one.

Lots of hugs and comfort to you and your husband as you miss your little Josiah.

Thinking of you and Josiah and praying for peace over this next month and holiday season.

I think you are right to keep things quiet and simple, don't do more than you feel you can. It is such an unfair thing to have to mourn your baby, I am so sorry you have to go through this.

Much love to you, I will keep you in prayer,

Dear Gloria,
I am sorry that you are facing these anniversaries. Instead of remembering your hospital stay, you should be chasing around a little boy. It is so unfair what we have to go through and the memories we have, but you have shown such strength and courage. It will be hard but I know you will get through it and we will all be here to help you.

Sending you lots of love and huge hugs. I think of you so much and remember your sweet Josiah. I wish I could take away all the memories that are so painful and somehow make it better. It is just so hard. Please know I am keeping you in prayer.
