Our Box of Memories

For years they have been on a shelf in Sean and Abby’s bedroom closet. Today I managed to fit most of our mementos related to our baby girl Molly into this box. I find that very bittersweet, that a life could be so short that you can fit all those special things into just one box.

Some days its hard for me to believe that our second child/our first daughter was real, to know that she was here, she lived and then died much too soon. However, packing this box today, as we prepare to move next week, filled with so many tangible things related to our Molly-girl, tells me that she was real, that she was here and reminds me how much I miss her.

Sometimes love lasts a lifetime. 
Sometimes a moment is a lifetime.”

i do not understand the pain but I do think of her often (and you – since we were pregnant together. It was my first pregnancy that made it past 11 weeks.) I want you to know that I do think of Molly often

I've been thinking of getting a Rubbermaid tote to put Katie's things into. I have a lot of her stuff (the outfit from the hospital, the cards we got, etc.) in a big hatbox I got at Walmart, but I also have her bedding set & a few other things. I'm thinking they all should be together. I'm sure packing up all those things was very bittersweet for you. (((hugs)))
