pregnancy and infant loss awareness day

Today is a beautiful day. So much peace and so much love. We remember our babies everyday, of course, but as Heather put it so well, today we also ask the world to remember with us. Reading everyone's blog posts today stir in me such a feeling of community. And this blogging circle is one of the friendliest, most caring communities I've encountered. Thank you all.

Today doesn't have to be a sad day - though I've had my moments. Today I choose to be joyful. Happiness can be a fleeting emotion, but joyfullness is intentional. The joyful me is tuned into God through the Spirit, and my heart sings praises all day.

Last night I changed my Facebook profile picture to the I Am the Face button and posted a link to the Web site. Today I updated my status again. I really haven't ever said anything about my losses so outright in that forum, and I was nervous. For what, I have no idea. But I will share my story with those who might ask, and I will do what I can to help assuage our society's reluctance to talk about it. I know who I am, and I know who my babies are.
