Constant Reminders

I came across a bib with Jack's name embroidered on it while perusing the sale section at W.illiams S.onoma. Cooking stuff doesn't have anything to do with babies, or so I thought. I can't seem to escape the everyday reminders. Will it ever end?

This sucks.

That is a cute bib, too bad the William Sonoma website isn't safe.

Since you are feeling down, I would recommend staying away from my blog today. I posted on baby stuff and I don't want to bring you down more.

I wish I could give you a hug and cheer you up!

It is a cute bib- I want it! I don't mind reading about babies, if I expect it. But when I'm checking sale stuff in a "safe" place, it brings me down. I think God's testing me.

I understand. The reminders are everywhere...and it's okay when you expect it. But when you don't, it's like falling down a hill.

I do the same thing. When I see the boy's names on something my heart drops and I freeze...especially when I'm not expecting it. I do the same thing even when I hear their names in public. My heart stops for a moment and an incredible sadness falls over me.

I thought the same thing about the bib, btw. It should be in it's own seperate section for baby though.

oh honey I keep realizing how long it has been since I commented and making a mental note to do so and forgetting. I wish we could have body guards of the heart, kinda like a bubble wrap that is especially for your heart and the hurt it carries around. Perhaps if you look at it as God has not forgotten about your babies and their names pop up in odd "safe" places to make you smile even though that may hurt a little?

That felt like a punch in the gut.

I just got home from the grocery store and once again could not will myself to go down aisle 11. Aisle 11 has baby stuff on one side and lightbulbs on the other. I think I'm just going to order the lightbulbs online. *sigh*
