Hi everyone. Hugs to you all.

As some of you will know, the reason I have been away is because I suffered a miscarriage. I won’t write about it much here as this blog is a happy place, but believe me when I say that this has been the most difficult and heartbreaking experience of my life. My heart goes out to all those who have experienced such a thing themselves.

I want to thank all those who have sent me messages of sympathy, those who have given their time to talk with me and help me feel better, and those close friends who have been wonderful in their support. I am truly grateful and I love you.

Before trying to resume my usual type of writing I want to share a poem with you. I wrote it for my little Strawberry, and for myself, as part of the grieving process. I am still not really up to full strength emotionally so forgive me if I am quiet or don’t post very much for a while longer.

To my baby

Light inside me, life inside me
Forgive your mother
for not having the words

Know that I love you
Know that I cry
And would cry forevermore
if it meant I could hold you,

lift you to the sky;

Ward off terrors and
shield you with my love.

I feel you and always will:
Come be with me in my heart.

I love you and always will:
Be at peace, my beautiful one.
