I wanted to post a little note to my blog friends and let you know I won't be posting for a few days.
As we draw closer to New Years Day, this is a time that becomes very difficult for me. Last year I didn't mention anything about it, because, to be frank, I just wasn't ready to share this difficult subject yet on my blog. But, I am going to share it this one time only.
Several years ago, my husband and I had a baby girl that was still born, and her birthday is on New Year's Day. This was a very tramatic event for us. And even though we are Christians, and know she is with the Lord, it is a day that is full of extreme sadness and grief. So, I do not celebrate New Years Day, and every year even the thought of starting a new year grieving the loss of a beautiful baby girl is very hard and draining.
So, this is what I ask of you in respect for her life and my grieving. Please don't wish me a Happy New Year, after you read this post. If you are a Christian, please just let me know you will pray for me on this day. That is what I need the most.
God bless you.
