A friend who lost one of her twins one year ago today (the day after she was born) introduced me to this awesome quote about loss and what remains:
“The tide recedes but leaves behind bright seashells on the sand,
The sun goes down, but gentle warmth still lingers on the land,
The music stops, and yet it echoes on in sweet refrains…
For every joy that passes, something beautiful remains.”
~ Hardin Marshall
Sending peace, love, light, thoughts and prayers to my friends and their son (the day after his first birthday) as they honor the life and memory of their daughter/his sister.
Also remembering our third angel baby this week, as yesterday was the seventh anniversary of our loss/the day that our interstitial ectopic pregnancy was removed. Our baby was due on June 18, 2006 (Father’s Day that year) and was our third loss in less than a year.
It’s surreal to think about what has happened since in our life and with our family. We feel very blessed for all that remains, as well as for all that we have learned from having Molly and Babies Benson in our lives.
