January 17th

Some days the pain swells inside you and overflows into tears. The pain for me is no where near the pain they must feel, unfathomable pain, for the loss of their dear sweet baby girl.
It’s been one year since Miss Charlotte joined Jesus in Heaven.
I think of her daily, usually while I nurse Jacob to sleep. In the stillness while I pray for my Children’s health she comes to mind. I pray she’s having fun with Jesus. I know she’s surrounded by love. I pray for her big sister and parents who are left here missing her, longing for one more snuggle. One more kiss. One more giggle. One more. Just one more. I always snuggle Jacob in closer at this point in my prayers. Sometimes he even stops nursing to gently touch my cheek.  I don’t know what else there is to say, she is loved, she is with Jesus. we miss her and will never forget her.
After people hear about the passing of a child they tell you to hug your kids tight tonight. I do every night. But sometimes you just want to remind people, don’t forget to snuggle with them, love them and be in their presence.
Today I say extra prayers for all the family. I’m taking even more time to pause and embrace my kids, kiss their cheeks, tickle their sides and visit with them. I hope you do too. Please Jesus give her an extra squeeze from me today.
