OK, so I originally started this blog post about a month ago and just never finished it. Well, today God made it very clear to me that I need to finish it.
Me and my bestie were getting Mary Kay facials done today. We arrive to the lady’s house so we can do this. We go in, introduce ourselves and begin. My bestie asks her if she has children. She replies, My baby boy is in heaven. I just about lost it right there.She hadn’t long lost her baby and I don’t know how she done it. I would be a basket case right now. So here’s where the original post begins.
Well, this post is actually about them. My 2 blessings. Everyday I am so thankful that God chose me to be their Mama. Out of all the women in the world, he chose me to create, love, teach, and guide these two. That, my friends, is a true blessing. The reason I say this is simple. I was blessed with two perfectly healthy, beautiful, smart, sweet, loving girls. Some women never get to experience that feeling. That blessing. For some reason, there are women out there that God chose to let them have their blessings only for a short time. Some that never got to hear the first cry, or see their beautiful eyes, or kiss their little toes. Some that got this but only for a short time. They never got to take their blessings home. Some that got to take them home but never got to hear them say Mama or Dada.
Then again maybe these women are the true warriors. To have the strength to let their blessings go. To have the strength to move on after that. It takes real strength to carry a new life and then have to let it go. My heart fully goes out to any woman that has lost a baby. Whether it be early on because of miscarriage or after they’ve been born and held them. Just the thought of losing one of my girls breaks my heart.
So, to all those women, you are the true heros. You are the strongest of the strong.
