Sometimes blogs and online comunities become venues for venting, chatter, and random fillers. But today is for honesty.

Two significant moments mark today:
1. We're moving intou Augusta!!! How incredibly exciting!
2. We were (very newly) pregnant and as of this morning are not.

How is that one day can mark such an exciting beginning as well as such a tragic end?

Hmm. In many ways the one new life seemed the perfect beautiful end to this year of peaks and valleys. However, I can also embrace how the mixed light and dark of this morning is also entirely fitting. We began this journey with loss and hope, and we now end this year in the same manner.

Outside our forested mountain is glistening with frost and light and shadows; so cold and beautful. It all appears dead, but really, it is only sleeping.

Oh hey dee,
That is sad- not much to say ...i think you read my thoughts with miscarriage in" to her that was and never will be... " She/he was... and I celebrate the short time that you got to enjoy ...with you . I also grieve at the fact that you had to let go so quickly- of the baby, dreams and hopes that come with expecting. I understand.
Love you.

I'm so sorry. I'm praying for you little family. I'm excited for your new house and sorry you have to grieve at the same time.
