I received a lovely card in the mail from a fellow BLM.(have I mentioned how much I love BLM mail!?) And this mama not only remembered Genesis by putting the cutest dragonfly sticker on the back of the letter but she was thanking me for my work on Names On The Sidewalk. She even made a donation towards the purchase of chalk! It just meant to much to me to know that there are people out there that support what I do for BLMs and remember Genesis along with me.
But did you notice what I saw on this piece of mail? Check out the upper right hand corner. There is that stamp of a girl again. As I mentioned before, this stamp ONLY has appeared on the mail I have received from my BLMs. Isn't that amazing? I just dont know what to really think about it... well I suppose I do. Its just weird saying it out loud I guess. But it did instantly make me think of Genesis and cant help but think that this is another one of her winks or perhaps God made it happen to remind me that I will see her again. Either way, I love it!
In my journey in life I have had many roles. Single woman. Then married. Then forced to be a single mom and then a single mom by choice. And now Im back to being married. I'm am a mama of 4 beautiful children. 3 I hold in my arms one I hold in my heart. 2007 was the year my life changed when my first daughter was stillborn. Little did I know my world as I knew it would never be the same.
This is a list of people regularly mentioned in my blog:
Mr. M aka Marlon~ My husband
Genesis~ My stillborn daughter
Exodus~ My daughter we lost as a chemical pregnancy
D~ My first son and rainbow #1
G~ My third daughter and rainbow #2
D2~ My second son and rainbow #3
N~ My fourth daughter and rainbow#4
Abilla~ My grandmother
What is a Rainbow Baby?
It is understood that the beauty of a rainbow does not negate the ravages of any storm. When a rainbow appears, it does not mean that the storm never happened or that we are not still dealing with its aftermath. Itmeans that something beautiful and full of light has appeared in the midst of the darknessand clouds. Storm clouds may still hover, but the rainbow provides a counterbalance of color, energy and hope.
What's a BLM?
BLM stands for Baby Lost Mama.This means that a woman has lost at least one child, weather it be a pregnancy, infant or older child loss. For more information click on the International BabyLost Mother's Day button below.
The Loss Of A Child
"A wife who loses a husband is called a widow. A husband who loses a wife is called a widower. A child who loses his parents is called an orphan. There is no word for a parent who loses a child. That's how awful the loss is." ~Ronald Reagan
