She Should Be

I've written a post at I Should Be Folding Laundry this weekend, giving a little peek inside as a friend to a friend who has lost her babies.

  5. That was a beautiful post. I totally hear you. My friend miscarried and delivered her baby at home between 16-18 weeks, got to see the heartbeat moving, and then watched as her baby went to be with Jesus. She was just a trimester ahead of me, and I was so afraid that my belly would be the elephant in the room. But like your friend, she's courageous enough to call it out and somehow care about my pregnancy beyond her own pain. I don't know how women like that do it, but I want to be like that too. The certain joy they have despite their grief shows their where their faith lies.

  7. I know your friend Beth just appreciates you loving her and letting her feel whatever she may feel at any given time - whethter that be her own grief or joy for you. The two can coexist and I am confident that they do for her. You are being exactly the friend she needs... loving, supportive, remembering, and honest. Just as you wouldn't want her to feel she couldn't mourn with you, I am sure she wouldn't want you to feel you couldn't be joyful about your own little one with her. That is what friends do... they walk together no matter the path.
    Beautiful post, Steph.
