One month

One month ago I was anticipating a “new normal” in my life, but I wasn’t expecting the normal I’d be searching for now.
So, instead of joining the mom blogs in the way I thought I would, New Normal will represent the journey taken to discover life without our baby and how her death will shape us.

I promise it won’t always be sad.

I’ll sign off with the promise I received from Luke 6:21:

“Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh.”

    I love you, Amy. I’m glad to see you back in blogworld and I will call you soon. Feel free to be as honest as you want to be here and don’t fear being sad. It is okay to be real.

    Yes Amy, you will laugh.

    You will laugh at my messy hair when I wake up.

    You will laugh at my frequent (and normally failed) attempts to “romance” you.

    You will laugh when I complain about going to the store because I would have to first tie my shoelace.

    Yes Amy, many laughs are awaiting you, and most at my expense. I don’t mind though, because seeing you laugh and smile makes me feel alive inside.

    I love you, Amy. So hang on during the sad, weeping times and remember that God gave you a husband that makes you laugh among other things. My messy hair is only a morning away!

    I agree, Megan’s post is very wise. You are in my prayers everyday, friend. I’m so glad to see that you are back in blog-land. We’re here to offer a shoulder anytime (and to share in your laughter too).

    i’ve been praying for you since i read about your loss on megan’s blog. i don’t know the details of yours, but our first daughter was stillborn 36 yrs. ago. eventually we had three more daughters who love the Lord. In those days, we didn’t get to see the baby. it never occured to me to ask. i’m more pushy now.
    we’ve never forgotten her of course. It will take time for the wound to heal. allow your friends and husband to minister to you and take time to be alone when you need to. grief has a lonely side to it but you will need the love of close fellow christians as well. my prayers are with you. martha
