Sisterhood of Sadness



I saw this and just had to share it. I read it on http://meghan-stripped.blogspot.com, her blog is called ItsJustMe. She is a miscarriage survivor.

A sisterhood of sadness.

It's a silent group, this new club of which I have recently become a reluctant member. Our membership cards are the scars we will always carry on our hearts. Our dues are paid in blood and tears. It is a painful initiation, and one never ceases membership. Because one never forgets.

I am joining, not because I want to, but because I wasn't given the choice. But at least I know I'm not alone. At least I know there are hundreds of thousands of women with me, however silent and invisible, quietly holding my hand.

~Author Unknown.

This is definatley the club that I was saying that I wanted to revoke my membership to. None of us want to be in this situation but are placed here by fate or sheer bad luck or what have you. I couldn't have said it better myself about the blood and tears that we all paid for our membership either.

Hug your children tonight and give them an extra kiss for those of us who cant do the same with our precious angels. Treat them as the treasues that they truly are and remember that tomorrow they may not be there. Be ever so greatful for each minute that you have with them.

May God send a league of angels to watch over your families tonight! God Bless!

I'm so very sorry about your precious baby. I found you through my friend Stacy's Blog. If I can help in any way Jen please get in touch. I run "Whispered Support" with my friend Carly and we both have blogs where we honor the memories of babies taken too soon. You aren't alone on your journey sweet girl. Sending you love and hugs. xxxxx

Thank you first for following my blog. I popped over to visit and am so glad I did. You are just precious. I understand about not wanting to be in that club. My mother & I are both in that club. God has blessed me with three healthy children but for some reason decided to take my 4th one home to be with Him. It is very hard at times. I am so sorry for your loss too.
Hugs,
Mimi
I am following along if that is ok.

I am glad that you pushed the button to follow me so I was able to find you. I am so sorry for your loss and the journey that has been given to you. Your post says it all. I am thankful each day for the blessings that God has given me. I thank God for giving me a heart for all of the women who have lost a babies and children. It is a club that no one should even have to join. I pray to God to give me the answers to why? so I can give each of you hope. My heart aches for you. If there is something else I can do for you please let me know. I plan on following you if that is okay. Your tattoo is beautiful.
