Signs & Good Fortunes

in Baby Benson, Bob, Molly, Sean, Signs

As you may have noticed, I blog more often when I am anxious.

Thank you so much for your kind words, support, encouragement, thoughts and prayers. They help me so much to take this journey one day at a time and know that so many people are holding me and my family close as we approach the birth of our daughter/baby sister.

Only three more days… September 17th is going to be a happy day!

In the meantime, here are a few “signs/good fortunes” that our family has received that I like to believe show that our daughter/sister Molly in Heaven continues to be with us in spirit and that our new baby girl will likely be delivered safely and healthy later this week.

Last week we bought three jars of natural creamy peanut butter at the grocery store, as we go through it pretty quickly in our home. I noticed this morning when I went to open one that the “Best if Used by” date was APR 17 2010 (the 2nd anniversary of Molly’s birth and death).

On January 1st of this year Bob and I ordered Chinese food for dinner to celebrate the new year. This is what I found in my fortune cookie that night! At the time we were already pregnant with Baby Benson, however we didn’t know it yet.

Over the weekend we celebrated my mom’s birthday at the same Chinese restaurant that Bob and I had ordered from earlier this year on New Year’s Day. This is what Bob found in his fortune cookie! I like to believe that it was a “message” from Molly, that she is looking out for/watching over her mommy, daddy, big brother Sean and soon-to-be born baby sister.

Those are WONDERFUL signs of good fortune! I love it when The Universe sends out little "love notes" like those.

well i am a lurker, a reader, a follower and a prayer of your blog, your family, your journey your angels. i too have many angels, however i have 3 amazing little girls i so often refer to as my miracles. i just wanted to take a moment and share with you i so understand your anxiety, fears and emotions but i also wanted to try to encourage you to wake up on the 17th and embrace only the best of what is to come, when we had beka and atty i was such a basket case i cant remember and know i did not enrobe myself in the joy but allowed fear to yet again rob me of one of the most joyous days of our lives. i remember telling my husband please dont look at them until they tell us they are okay, please, i held him so tight to me that we didn't see them be born, i wouldnt let him go see them cause i just knew if we saw them they would die…very sad now, then the few weeks following i just couldn't let myself let them in i just knew at 14 days they would die…now i know that i transfered a life of fear and pain that was reserved and should have left behind. sadly they will be our last unless the lord finds a way to bless us again, and i have so many regrets, i had always dreamed of those moments, but atlas the journey of infertility and pregnacy loss and infant loss won the war again, but just for that day, today i reap each day, i have dirty floors, mounds of laundry and we eat egg sandwiches for anymeal because we are sucking up every minute. take a deep breath, the lord, his angels are guiding you, they have charge, not you so take the gift…the gift of this dear child, her birth, her first breath, rest with the peace that you are where the lord wants you, and i have no doubt that although molly would have been tickled pink to be here on this earth with you, as a lamb in the flock of the children before our father, she is very much loved by the world and more than we know, living a full life is a tribute to her, i try every day to live my life to the fullest, no matter how hard for aubrey, she couldnt live it so i make sure i live it for her. let the raw emotions any fear out the night before, wake up with the excitement that for the breifest moment you will witness the light, a glimpse have you of the love and joy that one day we may hope to enrobe ourselves in for eternity, with our angels.congratulation, good luck, hope and much much peace to you and your family. oh happy days, the 17th will be!

I know that Molly will always be your special angel in heaven looking out for and your family. I believe that babies are in heaven before they come to us. So, I have to believe that Baby Benson and Molly have already had the joy to know eachother in heaven. Hugs and excitement for the happy day to come!

how lucky to receive such clear and beautiful messages from your little Molly. I absolutely believe these are her special ways of saying 'Hi Momma and Daddy, it will all be okay, I am watching out for you' 🙂 Counting down to 9/17 with you~ Kristin
