I came across this poem today....

And God Said



I said, "God, I hurt." And God said, I know."

I said, "God, I cry a lot." And God said, "That is why I gave you tears."

I said, "God, I am so depressed." And God said, "That is why I gave you Sunshine."

I said, "God, life is so hard." And God said, "That is why I gave you loved ones."

I said, "God, my son died." And God said, "So did mine."

I said, "God, it is such a loss." And God said, "I saw my son nailed to a cross."

I said, "God, but your son lives." And God said, "So does yours."

I said, "God, where are they now?" And God said, "Mine is on My

right and Yours is in the Light."

I said, "God, it hurts." And God said, "I know."

Kristy-

I absolutely love this poem... it is so perfect! Just exactly what I'm feeling today... mind if I borrow it?

Also, I'm so sorry about the doctor's office. I had that same feeling going to my OB- trying to decide to go there and be treated "special" (which at this point I still feel I deserve) and going somewhere else so I didn't have to walk into that office. I stuck with my doctor and as hard as that was a few weeks ago, it was good to cry. I had a nurse at the OB office ask me (when I was in my 20's weeks) what I was having. When I said another boy :) she said "oh, that will be so fun for your older son... someone for him to play with." I didn't know what to do... then she left and I started crying. SO HARD. Isn't that their JOB to know, to look at the chart? I know girl, I know. Sorry that had to happen to you!

Know I'm praying!
Love you,
Kenzie

Oh Kristy,

This poem is so perfect for you and for all of the other mothers feeling the same crushing heartache. I am praying for you and hoping you get rest.

Love, Laurie in Ca.

Hello,
I am sorry to hear about your Dr appt. You are right. I'm glad that you and Howard were able to have lunch together. It is amazing how much, just that small amount of time can make a real difference. Plese pray for my friend Regina, she is 20 weeks preg. and is having problems. She needs all the prayers she can get. I really liked your Hospice idea, how is that coming? Amy
