We remember

I debated whether or not to say anything...

The week of posts has kind of been up and down the emotional spectrum...

I decided to keep yesterday's post on track with Wordless Wednesday; I hope you liked all the pictures from May!

But today, I woke up, and knew I wanted to acknowledge that yesterday, Wednesday, June 3rd, was the day that our twins would have been due.

Can y'all believe that? How much life living Jim and I (and you, dear reader, and I!) have done in the last seven months? The move, the holidays, vacation, Duncan's conception, life in Tennessee, our break-in, Florida, Duncan's birth....

I can say with some sadness but pure honesty that it's like the twins never happened. As long-time Writer Chic readers know, we suspected, but hadn't confirmed, that we were pregnant, so when I lost the babies in October....well, it was all over before it really had a chance to begin.

But nevertheless, Jim and I did conceive in August, and these babies were our third and fourth children, and though we were never blessed to have them join our family here on earth, we know that their lives, however brief, mattered, and that we will see them again someday.

II Samuel 12:23
"...I will go to him, but he will not return to me."

Wow, what a couple of weeks you've had. Again, I am at a loss for words; you know all too well there is nothing anyone can say to make the pain go away, but you have many, many people who love you and are thinking of you and praying for you. You will get through this, I promise. Thank God for Seth!
