Therese & her Roses

You do know about St. Therese, right? 

(If not, that is a.o.k....but check out THIS link and you will find out! :)

"I will send from Heaven a shower of Roses."

And you do remember that we named our sweet little precious baby, Therese....right?

Ok, so here is the very COOL thing that happened yesterday...a friend who heard of our loss arrived at our home at 9:30am with...

...A DOZEN PINK ROSES!!!

(DO KNOW that She DID NOT KNOW we named our baby Therese or that we thought the baby to be a girl!)

YES!  Roses for Therese and from St. Therese (the little flower) and PINK for our baby GIRL!

I thought that was the greatest thing.  These things you cannot explain but believe through faith. 

Thank you for all this support and prayers...we are in need of them...thank you so much.

God bless,
Mary

I'm so sorry for your loss, Mary. We lost two babies through miscarriage. One of the heaviest crosses I've had carry so my heart goes out to you. But praise God that he is allowing your little girl to touch your heart and bring you comfort in your grief. She may not be with you physically but she'll always be your baby and you will always be her mama. Now she is safe in the arms of Our Lady praying that one day you (and your family) will be united with her again in heaven. You're in my prayers.

Mary, a dear friend of mine directed me to your blog. She kindly asked me to read your latest posts and leave you a sweet comment.

My deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family. You are carrying an overwhelmingly heavy cross right now. I promise you to eep you in my prayers.

I recently wrote on my blog about the Shrine of the Holy Innocents. You can have your baby's name written in a book there. People pray there and masses are said once a month. It has brought me great comfort to do this. Please read my blog post and follow the links. I hope this will help.

May God abundantly bless you and console you.
