In a blink...
Life is fragile. Yes, I know that we all “know” this about life, but knowing just how fragile most likely means that your life has been tested in some way.
In a blink...I was planning a birth, looking towards a greater life full of more love than humanly possible. Then I blinked to wake in a fog of my new reality. Not just my new reality, but also my beautiful family’s. Was it all just a bad dream? Where did all of those yet to happen memories full of love disappear to? What did I do that was so terrible that I was given such devastating heartbreak in return?
Since THAT day, November 2, 2007, life has never been the same. It has taken me, since THAT day, to acknowledge, to find and to prayerfully fulfill MY purpose while on this earth. All with God and Boden’s grace, love and guidance, and in Boden’s memory. It hasn’t been easy as it has quieted me down on so many levels. I am a wife, a mom, and founder of a boutique business on a mission built on fulfilling a heart of purpose. But, quiet is not always the best for growing an emerging mission driven brand...AKA...my baby girl, Georgia Kate. I blame it on my personal belief of living life and business authentically.
In a blink, the grief, that settles long enough so that joy could take over, rips open the healing wound. In those times, I find the much needed quiet so I can acknowledge, let go, reset and start anew. I know God and the universe will always have my back. Your back is covered, too. Though our journeys may take us through unwanted paths, there’s always the light of love and hope waiting...just like a rainbow after a storm. The immense love we feel is why we feel the raw and agonizing pain of loss. It is because of love that my Boden will always be talked about and remembered as with all precious babies and souls gone too soon.
Happiest of Heavenly Birthdays to our sweet baby boy, Boden...I love you forever and always, my sweet prince. xoxo, mommy
...in memory of all angel babies gone too soon...
