In not a small way

April 22, 2012

There’s a place in the house where several pictures of Sofia are beautifully displayed.

At times I strategically place other photo frames in front. And at other times I sit and stare and it’s a knife through my heart.

Tonight I am caught off guard and it hits me, nearly a physical feeling of panic and pain. And, of course, the tears flow.

And in this moment I glance at Baby who just moments before is sleeping peacefully and she now stares at me intently with a big smile and begins to coo.

It’s almost as if she tells me Momma, you’re OK. I am here to make you feel better.

Her big eyes envelope me in pure love and are an unceasing reminder of the faith I hold.

In not a small way, she has saved me.

    Thank you for sharing this Sheri and letting wear your shoes for a brief moment. I don’t know what the purpose of grief is, but it is how we are built, to mourn and ache for those not here. I wish, I’m sure all your friends and family do, that we could take some of it from you, so you could carry less of it. Grief is a facet of motherhood, this way of carrying our children, housing them, no matter where they are in the universe. Sending love to you and Sofia right now, as always.
