You have experienced the unimaginable and yet you wake each day and walk into this world. No matter when your loss was or how far along you were or how long you had, your heart will never be the same. Your heart shatters, broken through into a million shards. And through those cracks the light pours into the darkness. A new more beautiful heart will emerge.
Mama, we see you. You are not alone.
You may not believe that your heart will ever feel whole again. For having loved if only for a moment is a gift.
“A mother is not defined by the number of children you can see but by the love that she holds in her heart.”
– Francesca Cox
Being a mama to a baby that does not walk with us on this earth; holding your baby in your heart instead of your hands, there is nothing harder.
And that love – immeasurable and true – transcends this world and the next. One moment at a time. One foot in front of the other.
The shards are always there, only the cracks may be filled with gold, the ache of a life that is no longer ever present. Both are true. The beauty and the pain.
Today we honor all mamas, we see you, we are you, and you don’t have to do this alone.
You are loved.
You are worthy.
You are a mama.
For everyone who has made it to this part, listen closely dear ones, reach out to a friend or a sister, a mama whose heart might be dreading next weekend and let her know she is not alone 💜
We walk grace that everyone’s path is different. To all of the mamas that Love for Lily has had the honor to walk with through their loss, we are humbled by your hearts. You are warriors.
