Well, Monday is October 15th. Remembrance day. I just thought maybe people would like to share what they are going to do.
For us. Sunday the hospital where I lost Rebecca is having a memorial ceremony and wall dedicated. On Monday I plan to send up two pink balloons, one from me and one from husband and of course we are lighting a candle at 7pm in here memory.
I am lighting a candle of course. However, I plan on being at the house of a woman that just lost her five month old to SIDS. I am so heartbroken that this has happened. I want to be there for her and her husband. Even if she doesn't want to talk, I want her to know that I am there for her. I plan on making a couple of dinners that freeze well and taking them with me. Shelly
We are planning on letting 2 balloons off as well, one from me and one from my dh. I had read in a help book about writing on the balloons, so I will probably write something to them and set them free. I will also light a candle at 7:00p.m.
I was also happy to find a sponcered walk just for Pregnancy & Infant Loss in my area. This is being held on Saturday which we plan to attend.
To Shelly, It is very kind of you to be with your friend and her dh during this time. I believe thinking of others can help us deal with our own struggles at times. You all will be in my thoughts as well!
And, everyone out there who has suffered a loss will be in my thoughts. May you be comforted in some way during this time.
We plan on lighting a candle and we talked about the balloons. We found a little tea light holder that is in the shape of an angel with her wings kind of holding the tea light. I plan to start using that when I think of our angel anyway.
The hospital where i lost my last baby is having A Walk to Remember Sunday. I will be going to that along with some family and friends. I am going to also let balloons off and light a candle at 7. I will probably spend some time in my "angel garden". I hope that everyone finds peace and comfort on October 15. My heart will be with everyone.
