A Special Woman

A few weeks after we lost Nicholas I got an email from my former workplace. The email was from a woman I had never met (she joined the company after I had left). The news of our experience, however, spread quite quickly through the office and she wanted to express her sympathy for the loss of our little boy. I still remember sitting at the computer and reading that note. It came when we were still in such a dark, desperate place and I remember feeling just a slight glimmer of hope that maybe this world of ours still had some kindness in it. I mean, what kind of stranger takes time out of their day to reach out to a bereaved mommy? As I continued to read her words I learned that she had experienced the loss of her baby boy just a few shorts months before. She expressed her understanding, her support and she reached out with her heart and for that, I will forever be grateful.

This Sunday, April 26 marks her baby boy's Angel Day. It will be a tough day, a sad day, but, I hope also, that she and her family will be able to find some peace and calm. I will be thinking of her and her sweet Angel and hold them in my prayers.
Nicholas' candle is lit tonight in memory of H.

Love to our Angels..... xo

I love that you light your candle. I love, even more, that she reached out to you and it affected you in the time when you needed it most. I will be thinking about her.

Those glimmers of hope are what help us hang in there through the tough times. What a nice gesture for you to light a candle for your coworker's angel. I'm thinking of both you and her tonight as well as your angels.

I am a day late, but thinking of H, and his mama, and the beautiful compassion in her heart.
