Picking up the pieces

Everyone is associated with it in some way or another. Death. It's a part of life. Sometimes we may feel that someone passed too soon. Miscarriage, stillbirth, infant or child death. Tragic is the only word that comes to mind. The loss of a child is like no other. I am fortunate enough never to have gone through it. But I have many family and friends who suffer. As I have said before, I am an Elizabeth Minister. We help in situations such as this. Many families feel it's taboo to talk about. That people will feel sorry for the wrong reasons maybe. That someone will look differently at you knowing you've experienced the death of a child. That you alone know the feeling. You are not alone. There is support! Today, I am attending the Tree of Light Infant Memorial Mass at a local church for the diocese. I am going in honor of each and every little cherub called to Christ. Take comfort in knowing we pray for you and your babies even if you don't realize it.

If you or someone you know is going through a crisis such as this. Please contact me. We are here to help, to be your friend, to be your support. You can also check out for more information about this wonderful ministry. Xoxo
