I buried my son yesterday...

Some of you know I was pregnant with my 6th child. He was stillborn this past Tuesday. We found out the day before he had no heartbeat. My doctor thinks the umbilical cord clotted and cut off his blood supply. I was 37 weeks pregnant.

The reason I'm posting this is a lot of us, myself included, take for granted the health and very existance of our children. We tend to complain about things that in the long run mean nothing. We all recover from sleepless nights. Cherish every moment.

For those of you moms who have experienced the same thing, I'm feeling great pain for you too. I know Gabriel is looking at the face of God and that helps a bit. But I miss him.

The link is a friend of mine's blog. Read Sorrow and Faith. The first picture is me pregnant with Gabriel and my sweet James hugging my belly.

Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth. I sat at a table where were rich food and wine in abundance, and obsequious attendance, but sincerity and truth were not;
and I went away hungry from the inhospitable board.

Geeky is my hero. She's the true badass. The badass who doesn't even need to be a badass. There aren't enough O's in cool to describe her.
