A Faith-Shaped Hole in My Heart

Faith-Shaped Hole I will always have a Faith-Shaped hole in my heart.  For those of you who have lost a child(ren), you know what I mean.  For those of you who haven’t, let me explain. Earlier this evening, my husband, our daughter Joy, and I were hanging out in the bedroom watching a Christmas movie.  We talked about Faith and how she would be laying right next to Joy in the bed with us if she were Read More

Life Goes on Today without Faith

Life Goes On Life goes on today without Faith.  Even though this is the case, life today without Faith, was a very good day.  We went shopping and got some things we needed.  Then we came home and my husband made some wonderful vegetable soup.  We had a great time playing with Joy.  I also did some laundry (this just reminded me that it needed to go in the dryer!). Work So, now I am trying to Read More

Thankful for Our Life in the Country

Thankful for Our Life This evening I am reflecting on today and being thankful for our life in the country.  Earlier this evening, I was thinking of Faith, when my husband and I were spending time with Joy.  We were having such a wonderful time together.  I found myself wondering about what Faith would be like if she were here today.  I miss her so much and know I will continue to do so as life goes Read More

Missing Faith

As we draw near to Joy’s first birthday, I have been thinking about and missing Faith.  I cannot help but miss her and think of what she may be like today.  She would be 2 years and 3 months old now.  I know she is a wonderful big sister and she would be a great one here if she were here.   We moved in June to IL to be close to my family with a lot of Read More

How Being a Mommy of Two makes me a better Parent of One

As I was playing with Joy the other day and as Faith’s second birthday approaches, I was thinking of the person I have become since Faith died.  I can speculate all day about the type of parent I would have been if they both were here, but that is not the case.  At the end of the day, I miss Faith so very much.  But I know in my heart that having her for the short time Read More

Faith Melody Memories – My “Ah Hah” Moment – Why I Do What I Do

So, I’ve decided I don’t feel like getting the work I need to do done tonight. Just one of those nights. I’ve been taking some pics of my jewelry to update my Etsy shop with and was thinking about why I make jewelry. As I was taking some pictures, I tried on a couple pairs of earrings (one was a pair of freshwater pearls like you have Jen Anderson).  When I tried them on I went over Read More

Capture Your Grief – Day 31 – Sunset

Well, today is the last day of Capture Your Grief for this year.  Of course the topic is Sunset.  I did not get a picture of a sunset here in FL, USA today, although I am sure it was very nice.   So, for my picture for today, I am using a picture I took not too long ago in this area, so it is still my picture and it is still around sunset at an area close Read More

Capture Your Grief – Day 30 – Reflection

Reflection was yesterday’s Capture Your Grief topic.  Today, I will again go question by question on this topic, since there are only a few questions and I think it’s the easiest route… Q: What is your relationship with grief like right now? A: My relationship with grief now is one of co-existence.  I don’t know how to explain it any differently than that.  I live with grief every day.  I do not WALLOW in grief, but it Read More

Capture Your Grief – Day 29 – (WHY?) What Heals You?

I really like today’s Capture Your Grief topic.  The topic is What Heals You?.  You can read the history of this topic on Carly’s site in the link above.  I have done the Whys and What Ifs many many times since Faith died.  I may still every now and then.  However, Carly’s idea of focusing her energy on What Heals You? instead is a great idea! The bottom line is I can’t change that Faith is gone.  Read More
