Today is a hard day for my husband and I, because five years ago, we had a miscarriage.
It still hurts, and every year on this day, I get a twinge and I am reminded all over again about the baby we lost.

It’s so interesting to me, that our day of sad remembrance is a day of jubilee for others.
I remember clearly a friend telling me, “Don’t hold back your sad news in the face of my joy or your happy news in the face of my sadness”
I often think about that when this day comes around, and while it’s true that you cannot have flowers without rain, but the rain can be so cold and unforgiving, it’s hard to forget it does have a purpose.
I am going to go on sharing this because it’s something we as a society, do not talk about enough. So my call to action to you, dear readers, is if you have a similar experience, or someone who has had a miscarriage, please please post a heart or a ❤ on this post to stand in solidarity with those who have had loss.
I am sad today, and that is because we lost our child.
No amount of “sorry for your loss” changes that, and it’s something we say because in loss, there is little to say to bring comfort, other than to just “be there”
It’s often underestimated as a thing to do, and sometimes it is the only thing to be done.
Think About It.
