Up and At it Again!

First I must apologize for being absent from the blogosphere for so long. Trying to get internet service has been a bear and we have been offline since June 18.

Our move is complete now, with phone and internet connected we can begin to get back to normal.

I have to give so much thanks to my brother and my husband (he got some awesome guys to help us move). They got us moved in one day and didn't put a scratch or dent anywhere in the new house. They were awesome! Thanks Guys!

After going through much stress with buying this house, we know now that it was the right thing to do.

On June 27 I had a miscarriage. Therese was 12 weeks along. She was so very very tiny. Her little feet and hands were so perfectly formed. Her ears so very tiny. We were so blessed to have been able to hold her (quite literally)in the palm of our hands. Our priest here was so awesome. He came and said the Mass of Angels at our home and blessed our little one. She was buried on July 2nd.

Because we now own our own home, we were able to plant a beautiful garden in her honor. We finished it yesterday. I planted Mandevilla, roses, white asiatic lilies, zinnia, petunia, wave petunia, geranium, vinca and two palm trees. I'll get some pictures up soon. We will eventually add some jasmine and more perennials. Father also gave us some wonderful plants from his garden and they have made our home look fabulous! Thanks Father! You are truly a blessed Priest. We are so honored to have you as our shepherd.

I have to say that I was not looking forward to this post.
Every now and then I get a very empty feeling in my heart. I am begging our Lord daily to conform me to His will. He is so good to us, even to let us hold our little one was just amazing and we are so blessed by it. Thanks be to God! Please keep us in your prayers and know that we pray for all of you ( I mean all of you bloggers and blog readers!) daily.

I am so sorry! My prayers are with you!

I know you have, are, and will struggle with that feeling on and off all the rest of your life in different intensities, but know that this is God conforming you to His will be be all you can be for Him. His expression of love and mercy are unfathomable and therein lies our eternal hope. May all His angels surround you, May Christ strengthen you, May Mary's love and protection nourish you, and may you always feel loved by God Himself. You have our prayers, as you know. And, call me ANY TIME you need to chat about anything.

I love you. You are one of my life's best blessings, friend. You are my sister. Maybe little Therese is sitting up there talking with my lost boy, Connor the first. We didn't know boy or girl or any such thing, we only know the loss . . . and it hurts. The solace is that we have little saints up there helping us out here.

On another note: Thank God you had a priest there! And that he was so compassionate!

Can't wait to see pics of the garden and your new home and all that.

my sincerest condolences on the loss of your little one. Be assured of her prayers in Heaven for you.

I was praying for you and your family and will continue to do so as you mourn and recover.

Memorials are a beautiful way of celebrating even the tiniest of lives. We have our own little Josef buried in the cemetery of Sacred Heart. I will never forget the warm, heartfelt sympathy we received from Msgr. and parish staff.

God bless you and keep you.
