Mary Rose's Due Date

Postby gossamer » Mon Nov 15, 2004 08:38 pm

Well, today is Mary Rose's due date. I am so sad thinking that I should have been planning a birthday party instead of buying flowers for a grave. I miss my daughter so much. I had a miscarriage in October and one thing I felt while I was pregnant was that I missed not being pregnant with Mary Rose. I missed her specifically. I am so sad that I will not get to know her. I will never see her smile, or hear her laugh. I will never see her face of surprise or smell her breath. I will never get to brush her hair or dress her again. I will never teach her to put on make up or help her pick out a perfume. I will never teach her how to put on stockings or buy her first bra. I will never know her dreams or fears or passions. I will never get to hold her and kiss her and comfort her. I will miss her for the rest of my life.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family... Due dates, angel dates and birthday days are days that are "suppose" to be happy days instead we dread them.

Many hugs to you

I will also be thinking of you during this time of heartache. Always so hard and full of sadness to "relive" these days that were supposed to be so full of joy and fun. Wishing you peaceful and loving thoughts of Mary Rose.
