My mighty heart skipped a beat...

I was watching A Mighty Heart yesterday while lounging in my sick bed, and there is a scene where Angelina Jolie is lying in bed and she is reading What to expect when you're expecting. Anyone who has been pregnant in the last 10 years or so will know the holy grail of pregnancy books...but seeing this book during the movie made my heart skip a beat. I remember running out to Borders the very night that I found out I was pregnant to finally buy my very own copy~ I was on cloud 9 that night...filled with excitement and love for my baby. Getting through each week in the book was like counting down the week until my baby would be in my arms.

I loved the excitement of planning for the new addition to our family, and my heart aches for the all the plans and dreams that I will never experience with Lily. Nothing will ever be the same, when even a glimpse of a book can take you back to happier times...

I hate that we are having to go through this. it is so hard! I pray that we can gain strength and move forward. Not to forget, as we never will. To move forward through the grief. I sometimes feel I have fallen back to the first days. Those were so hard an I don't want to be there again. I just understand about your heart skipping a beat. Mine has done the same.....
