Day 15 - Not many words


Today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Day. I lit two candles and kept them burning while I cooked dinner. 

We opened a bottle of wine and remembered. It's so important to remember. I took a little journey, a pilgrimage if you like, into the sad place and thought of how there are two little lives not here when they should be. They never will be here. But that doesn't mean we don't remember. 

If you have lost a pregnancy or an infant, or more, light a candle, or do whatever feels right for you and remember their small, too short lives. 


ps Thanks to Jejune for these candles, one of which was a gift after the first loss.
