Today is National Infant & Pregnancy Loss Remembrance day and I took time on my Facebook page to reflect on the pregnancies that we’ve lost.
With loss and remembrance, though, comes gratitude as well.
I got this text at work from Pea’s teacher (who happens to be one of my good friends) today:
Pea drew this amazing family portrait today.
I about cried.
That’s all it took.
What an amazing gift my 6-year-old has given me in this picture. My heart filled with pride just thinking about my family. How talented Pea is. How silly she is. How funny and smart she is… I am so thankful for the blessing of my little family.
As much as my kids can be absolute pains in the ass, they are my pains in the ass and I love them beyond belief.
Every miscarriage, every pain, everything- I would do it all again because it got me here.
A happy mom of two able to revel in the little things.
Remember your lost loves today, y’all and love those around you as well.
