It is a sad day, today. One of my dearest friends miscarried after five months of a pregnancy that had been celebrated by so many. As those of us who love her gathered together, we cried. We felt the loss of something that was already so loved, so a part of us, and such a part of our dear girl. I cannot imagine her pain, and mine is that I am not able to be there to hold her and comfort her.
There is no right thing to say...nothing that will take the pain away...nothing that will make it better. We are all inconsequential in this moment. So, we do what we know best: we send our strongest, most loving thoughts over the 1000 mile distance and hope that she can feel the lifeline that we are throwing.
