Blessings in the midst of sorrow...

Thank you, thank you, thank you all for the outpouring of love. Thank you for not making me regret the way I chose to process this loss. I have never felt so much comfort and love in the midst of such grief and sorrow. Thank you fellow women, my dear sisters, for sharing your stories. I especially thank those who shared how physically painful miscarriages can be as well as emotional. Thank you for your courage. I have a newly found respect for womankind; it is truly unbelievable what we go through sometimes.
Thank you to every man who stepped up to offer comfort, your chivalry will not be forgotten.
I am a different person today, I am more mature, I have been tried and tested but I am not broken.
Your words are tangible comfort, when I feel like I can't breathe, I can go through and re-read every good wish, every good solace, and it is a balm for my soul.
I don't know how long the tears will flow, or when the pain will subside, but as my husband keeps reminding me, we will take it one day at a time. Thank you!

I am very sorry for your loss. Crying never hurts. It just makes your eyes red and your nose run. I used to cry in the shower when I was sad.

Elizabeth, I'm going to use that as a quote!
"Crying never hurts. It just makes your eyes red and your nose run."
And I'm envisioning a nice handmade card, a small wooden hand painted plaque, a scrapbooking page, &/or some other crafty projects that I could use it perfectly on.
Maybe me using this to help someone else is the tiniest of positives that can come out of such a sad event as this.
