a day that i didn't even really know existed until now. shame on me.
i apologize for all the days in my past that i have allowed this day to pass without a second thought for little lives lost.
now my eyes are opened. i see the suffering. we weep together.
people from all around the world are lighting a candle today in remembrance of all those little lives lost too early through miscarriage, stillbirth or infant death.
and i join them. my remembrance candle is lit.
for the Paddock babies.
for baby R.
for baby K.
for baby B.
for baby Chee.
for baby N.
for baby F.
for baby Hoffman.
for baby Marrs.
for Noah Hudson Butler.
for all those too young to have a name.
for all those not listed, you are in my heart.
each of your sweet lives, though way too short, mattered. you have eternal value in this world.
you are loved.
you will never be forgotten.
you shine brightly, today and forever.
