I lit this one in honor and memory of all the babies gone too soon. Thinking of everyone with an angel baby and wishing they were in the their arms instead. I'll never forget last year lighting a candle and thinking about everyone I knew who had a loss. I never imagined a year later I'd find myself among them. At least I know my angels are in the best company I could ask for, if they can't be with me.
I thought this would be harder tonight. I thought I'd be crying and breaking with every piece of me. Instead I feel peace and love. I'd like to think it's my babies looking down on me and telling me it's okay. It wasn't my fault and they are okay and they are always with me. It's what I want to believe and I hope is true. All I know for sure is right now I feel a lot of peace.
