I have been a little upset about Mother's Day coming up. It's hard because I want people to remember that I am still a mother, even if my babies aren't with me. I recently received this poem from a friend who has lost two babies, and it really meant a lot to me. It reminded me that my children are with me, no matter what, and no one can change that. It is still a special day for those who have lost children. I am sending this to you because it's a difficult time and I want to be honest and share my feelings. Sometimes people don't know what to do or say, so they don't say anything. For me, I enjoy talking about my boys and am very grateful when they are mentioned. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this as I did!

Dandelions From Heaven
Mothers Day is coming, and I wanted to send you a sign;
Something you can tell others "Is from an angel of mine."
So I searched the Heavens high and low for that perfect thing,
And lo and behold I found it....and a smile I hope it will bring.
So when you look to the Heavens, and see the yellow stars in the sky,
Just think of me...your angel... in the Heavens way up high.
And just imagine those stars are dandelions up above
Yes! Dandelions are also in Heaven,which you know how much I love.
So on this Mothers Day when you awake and feel blue,
You will notice those yellow stars are no longer in view.
So just look to the meadows and the dandelions you see
Are the ones I've tossed down this Mothers Day from me!
And when you find a dandelion that has turned from yellow to white
You're supposed to make a wish, and then blow with all your might.
For you will be blowing kisses to me in Heaven above,
And I will be catching them and blowing them back, sent with all my love.
Please know that I am with you on this Mothers Day.
And also in the days ahead, God and I will never stray.
We will be with you in the morning when you wake and see the sun;
We will be with you when you say your prayers when the day is done.
God and I will never be very far from your side,
For I can now be everywhere, and God will be your guide.
So remember when you see dandelions, it's your guarantee
For dandelions are free to roam now just like me.
I will always be with you Mom....
Happy Mothers Day
Your Angel in Heaven.

Amy and Jim... I've been remiss about checking in but you and Brian and Sawyer have all remained in our prayers.

I've just been reading your posts. I wanted to apologize because I know I'm one who referred to "your babies." I meant it in a sweet way, but I see where you'd want to be sure they were acknowledged for who they are.

I will be thinking about you on Mother's Day, especially. I am glad you are finding some friends who can understand better than others of us what you are going through. But please know that we are praying for you and thinking about you and hoping that you are finding grace where you need it.

Love you much, friend.
