Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day

Today is National Infant Loss and Miscarriage Day. While I have never had to enter this personal hell, I know many families who have. There’s never a right thing to do or say, there will never be an answer to why one family must suffer while another does not. I am not sure how one survives the loss of a child, not sure how I would handle it. I probably wouldn’t. I know so many amazingly strong, brave women who have. The stories are endless and heart breaking, and how I wish better days for them.

It’s a small thing, to recognize such a painful subject. But it’s an important one. As a parent of a beautiful boy, I am aware of the pain others have had to endure. I want them to know that today, and every day, I think about them and hope their broken hearts are mending.

Today I am grateful. Today I am spending time being happy about the small things, and not worry about all the extra bits and pieces. Today I am blessed.

We need to remind oursleves of the blessings we have in our life. I also know women who have lost a child and I can't even imagine.

I know I find myself forgetting to be grateful. I hope in the future I will continue to focus on all that I have and be thankful.
