Today was the day...
Today WAS the day....
we had scheduled our c-section to have Lila.
our family of 3 was to become a family of 4.
Lila would wear her first bow.
I was supposed to hold my daughter for the first time.
Griffen would get to hold his sister.
Scott would dance with his daughter for the first time.
I would celebrate with friends for the births of our babies just weeks apart.
the first granddaughter would be born into both families.
Instead, today IS the day...
we place Lila's headstone on her grave.
we continue to mourn the loss of our baby girl.
we celebrate the 16 days that we had with Lila, since some people don't even have that.
we try to forget all the "firsts" that we missed.
I cling to every scripture I know.
I remind myself that God is good and all that He does is good.
celebrate knowing that my little girl is being held by the One who created her.
Thank you for your prayers today!
Psalm 50:15---Call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.
