I attended the annual Christmas luminary service for the boys this year It's always so hard.....this is my third year and I'm starting to recognize the familiar faces from the years before. There is another young mother who's baby girl is buried right by the boys.....She's been there every year. I feel so sad for her. She was 6 months pregnant when her daughter died. Her daughter's name was Sanaii (Pronouned Suh-Nie) We made eye contact a few times during the service.....
They also read this poem I'm Spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this Year
I see the countless Christmas trees,
Around the world below.
With tiny lights, like heaven's stars,
Reflecting on the snow.
The sight is so spectacular,
Please wipe away that tear.
For I'm spending Christmas,
With Jesus Christ this year.
I hear the many Christmas songs,
That people hold so dear.
But the sounds of music can't compare,
With the Christmas choir up here.
For I have no words to tell you,
The joy their voices bring.
For it is beyond description,
To hear the angels sing.
I can't tell you of the splendor,
Or the peace here in this place.
Can you just imagine Christmas,
With our Savior, face to face?
I'll ask Him to light your spirit,
As I tell Him of your love.
So then pray one for another,
As I lift you eyes above. Please let your hearts be joyful,
And let your spirit sing.
For I'm Spending Christmas in Heaven,
And I'm walking with the King.
DH and I were not having a very good night last nite
I came home from the Luminary Service obviously pretty down, and his stupid face was glued to the TV watching the Jags/Colts game
It's bad enough that he doesn't go to the Service with me, but then to not even console me when he sees that I'm upset???? That sucks!!!
Oh yeah, the last two years DHs parents have "bragged" about their "tradition" of putting 2 nutcrackers out at the cemetery for the boys....well, last nite, while my mom and I were at the gravesite, were there any nutcrackers??? NO!!! Wanna know why? I'm sure it's because my SIL has a new baby so they're not even THINKING about my babies... I cannot wait to CHUG a huge bottle of wine on Xmas day at the ILs house....bleh...
Christin, thanks for the siggy He's so flippin' cute!!!!!
I'm so sorry that David wasn't more supportive of you. Guys are SOOO different when it comes to grieving and emotional stuff. And as far as your IL's go... don't even get me started. I'm not their biggest fan based on what I have heard.
You're boys know how much you love them and miss them everyday! In my opinion, by not participating in their memory, the rest of them are missing out.
Yet another wonderful siggy by HeatherW.... thank you so much!!!
Thank you Kari I wish that I could somehow SHARE the love I have in my heart for my boys with the people in my life that don't seem to give a d@mn. You said it beautifully, THEY are the ones missing out!! Asher and Noah are my ILs ONLY grandsons!! How can they ignore that? The cemetery is LESS than a mile from their doorstep, yet they don't even stop by at Christmas time??? UGH!! They make me
When Brewer comes into our lives, I WILL NOT let the ILs say that he is their "first" or "only" grandson, I will QUICKLY remind them of the baby boys they so QUICKLY forgot about
(((HUGS))) to you, Brandi. You are such a strong, courageous woman and mother.
I'm sorry this pain is on your shoulders....I know when your baby boy comes home, he won't take away the pain of losing Asher, Noah & Tres, but I know adopting him will bring an awful lot of JOY into your life! You are a great mommy to your angels and you are going to be a great mommy to the baby in your arms!
Married with two awesome 7 year olds, we're TTC with unexplained infertility.
Thank you sophiasmomma for my beautiful siggy!
