Estimated Due Date

Today was my estimated due date for Sam, the sweet baby that I miscarried in August.  I knew the day was swiftly approaching, but I still felt a bit blindsided when I noticed that today was May 6th.  I have been having a sad sort of a day remembering my little one.  Although the sting of loss has lessened a bit over the past 8 months, it seems fresh and new today. 

Requiem aeternam dona ei, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat ei. Requiescat in pace. Amen.


  1. Awww, little sweetie pie. I was trying to remember that little guy's information. May perpetual light shine upon my little grandson, through the mercy of God may he rest in peace.

    At Mass and at Adoration, when I am in the Eucharistic presence of the Lord, I often think of a flurry of little souls hovering around me -- my miscarried children, and all of my little grandchildren who only got to gestate for a while in their mama's wombs. Life is so precious.

  2. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I had two little ones due in May that I wait to meet in heaven some day. I still think of it every year, although they would have been turning 17 and 13 by now. As Rae says, life is so precious.
