They Don't Know

Losing a loved one to death brings a myriad of emotions ... all complicated ... all different ... all difficult.

Jill received some valuable advice from a Grandmother who had lost 2 babies....

"The best advice I got was not really advice but more of a warning. My son was born sleeping at 33 weeks. Many people knew we were pregnant so the best advice I got was from my grandmother who lost 2 babies, be prepared for people to ask how the baby is, they don't know that he was born sleeping and therefore their questions come with great big smiles and cheer. And be prepared for their reaction when you tell them he passed. There were so many people that didn't know, and even now 4 1/2 months later still people who don't know and ask who is watching the lil guy when we go out."

Father, Yahweh, I pray today for for Jill. Thank You for the earned wisdom of her Grandmother ... and the very real help it gave Jill in being prepared to receive peoples questions about their child ... with wisdom and grace.

xtnyoda, shalomed
