8 months



How is it possible for something that happened eight months ago to still hurt so bad?

The thing I am realizing is this: with each passing month from here on out, the time that she has been gone is greater than the time that she was here. Also, this time last year I was 8 weeks pregnant. I was so excited and telling everyone! These days, I am praying to be pregnant and of course for patience to understand that when the time is right it will happen.

What a beautiful picture, Jessica.

I have no answers, but I do know how it hurts. And I know how it is to be struck by the reality of loss again and again.
Thinking of you and praying,
Hannah

I'm so sorry you hurt so bad. I wish I could help fix your heart.

I'm just so sorry for your pain. You're in my prayers.

I love that picture.

I know what you mean. Time doesn't erase the pain at all. There's no describing the change that does take place either.

Lifting you up and asking God to fill our arms again.

It has been 8 months for us as well, and often I feel like I'm back at square one in my grief. May God grant you peace, and may he bless you with another baby soon!

It's been just over 8 months for us as well.
Praying for you today...

Oh, your beautiful girl... you have much to miss and much to long for. I am praying for God to fill your heart with hope again and to assure you, again and again and again, that your girl is whole and happy in His arms. You will be soon enough, too.
