    Default How are you going to remember

    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

    Shelly, I am so sorry to hear about your friend. I think it is wonderful that you are going to be there to support her during this tragic time. You are so strong for putting others first.

    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.

    I will be lighting a candle for the wave of light and i'll be thinking about all of our babies and saying a few prayers for them.

    It would have been Zanes birthday the day after and the anniversary of his death the day after that, so it's a difficult week for us.

    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.

    It is my DH's birthday, but we are for sure going to light a candle. It has been awhile since I have looked at Beckett's stuff, so I think I will go through that and talk to him a little bit as well.

    Well, when this day rolls around (as well as her EDD and loss date) I bring out her memory box that I had made.

    I also will read her poem that I wrote and have framed in the livingroom.

    I'll probably spend some quiet time tonight when my son goes to bed and just thinking about my wonderful pregnancy with emma (although it was way too short but while i was pregnant it was wonderful)

    I"ll talk to Kalan (my son) about her some more.

    I keep Emma a part of my every day, but on days like today I will go through her memory box and just spend more time reflecting i think

    HUGS
