{image: we heart it}
Today I watched one of my closest friends say goodbye to their baby boy. I can not get over how last time I saw her, she was pregnant and her little boy was kicking in her tummy. And today I watched her sitting at the funeral no baby and no pregnant belly. It's just wrong. It's not the way it's meant to be. So many tears.
Too many unanswered questions.
A song was played at the beginning of the service today with the chorus;

'I will carry you
While your heart beats here
Long beyond the empty cradle
Through the coming years
I will carry you
All your life
And I will praise the One who's chosen me
To carry you'. 

What strength and faith these friends displayed. Love them. And praying for the journey they have before them as they grieve their little boy.
I don't have much else to say today. Just didn't want to miss this opportunity to honour my friends and this little life that was way too short. xo


  1. I'm so very sorry. God be with your friend. Saying a special prayer that God helps her stay strong through this time.

  2. I am so, so sorry. I hope your friends will be surrounded by love and can follow their hearts in remembering their precious baby boy. My son would have been 23 a few weeks ago~they have a long, hard road ahead~I can honestly say the first 23 years of grieving has been the heart goes out to them..please let them know they are not alone in remembering..

  3. I am so very sorry. That is so heartbreaking. (((HUGS)))
    I pray that God will blanket that family & friends with His loving hand.

  4. I understand... my sister went through this and it was so heartbreaking and so difficult to know what to say or how to help. But I'm sure that your prayers will give her strength in this dark and difficult years ahead.

  5. Hugs Jordan - there really is nothing else but hugs xxx

  6. You are an amazing friend, thank you for opening up to us...

  7. Oh my heart. It breaks and I cry. Never forget to remember him. When it is all down the track. Don't forget to talk about him as he will always be alive in her heart. The hardest part is down the track when people don't mention it anymore. xx

  8. Jordan, your beautiful words have brought me to tears again....yes there have been so many tears. You are right, its not fair and these times leave so many unanswered questions.

    It has been heartbreaking to watch our dear friends endure this pain and loss. Your reflections have indeed shown so much love and honor to them and their precious angel. May he rest in peace in the arms of our God, and may Gods love be a tower of comfort and strength to those who are left behind to pick up the pieces. xx

  9. This is so sad and so unfair. I'm a few weeks from having my own child, and this is without a doubt the saddest thing any person can go through. All my love and support for this family.

  10. Oh Jordan, I am so sorry. That is so terrible. I can't imagine anything worse. :(

  11. Jordan, that is so heartbreaking......Im so sorry to hear - it would be the worst thing in the world to endure. You sound like a beautiful friend. xx

  12. I cannot imagine a more devastating feeling than what that poor mother experienced. I may know the answers to some of the unanswered questions though. You and your friend can learn more about what I know here:
