Today (well yesterday now, thanks to some technical difficulties) I went to a late lunch with my sweet friend, Britt. We both LOVE wingstop, so we went there and made our tummmies happy while talking about all manner of things, babies, lost babies, husbands, friends, things that made us laugh, things that weren't so funny. After we visited for a while, we decided that we would go do our own balloon release in honor of our sweet angel babies. So, off to the party store we went! It was super fun really, in a sad way that we would even have to do this, to even know that yesterday was National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day. Still, it felt really good to honor our angels and watch them soar way above us in the sky. I imagined them in the arms of my Maker, and knew that as much as it hurts, they are in good hands.
The weather today was absolutely beautiful, as there wasn't a cloud in the sky, the temperature wasn't overwhelmingly hot, and we are very blessed to have a children's park here in Tyler. It is very peaceful and such a perfect place for a balloon release. On Tuesday, Britt and I are planning on going to the park with some sidewalk chalk to write our babies names before the Glory Babies support group meeting. I'm excited about that and will post pics when we do that too! I would've loved to write every name of every angel baby of every person who has touched my life since my loss, but couldn't get them all in today. I'll add more and share as time goes on!
Here is the link to my shutterfly album with all the pics from our release, you'll see a few albums click on the Balloon release one.
