Well goodness already off to a rough start! I was going to blog last night after the boys went tobed, and I ended up going to sleep at 9pm after I got them all in bed! So two days today!
I am thankful for the kindess of strangers.
Throughout Grace's life and now after, we have become aware of many people who we do not know praying and thinking of us. Some have done such wonderful things for our family. I am so thankful for many people who have introuduced themselves to us because of our girl.
Last night was a pizza party for Iain and Isaacs soccer team that they played on during August, September and October. It is just a team through the YMCA but the coach wanted to do a little something extra for the kids and it was so nice. While we were there, the coach and another mom started talking about the number of kids they had. They said to me "you just have these 3?" and after momemtarily panicking, I gathered my courage and I said "No, actually I have 4. I have a daughter as well but she passed away in August." To be honest, oftentimes even with people close to me, if I mention Grace it's like I just said something awful and the conversation ends and I've made people uncomfortable. But last night? With two women who I've not really spoken much more than greetings to at soccer was different. They both said they were sorry and then the one mom asked how old she was and I talked about her. Then she asked what her name was. That might not sound like anything big, but it is. To have a stranger wonder what her name was, and for me to speak it. It just made my heart feel good. I am thankful for thier kindness.
