An unexpected birthday gift arrived in the mail last week. It's one of the most thoughtful gifts I've ever received.
As you may remember from this post, I had an early miscarriage last fall (2010). I also had another this spring. My due dates would have been last June and mid-December, right about now. Both miscarriages were early. I'm grateful that they didn't involve any medical intervention. And I'm extra grateful for words of comfort and truth from Scripture. Nevertheless, I'm still aware that I should be snuggling a newborn right now, or have a six month old. I passed a mom in Central Market today who had a newborn in a sling. It's moments like that. They happen all of a sudden. And it's all I can do to stop myself from walking up to her and telling her that I should have a baby too.
Back to the gift.
This is the necklace I already had.
And this is my new necklace.
It's a perfect addition to my Mommy necklace. It now feels complete.
Thank you, Niki.
