Music Mantra Monday ~ In the Arms of An Angel
Today is an emotional tribute here on the blog in support to parents out there during National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day.
There is no greater loss one can experience than that of a child. And it doesn't matter how long we have been blessed with their presence, that pain doesn't disappear. There can be many reasons a child may not be able to be with us as long as we'd hoped, but parents worldwide, especially moms, need a platform on which they can express the emptiness they keep with them, but don't always express their true thoughts and feelings as one truly cannot understand unless they have gone through it.
On a personal note, I too have experienced this loss due to health reasons, and almost lost my youngest for the same reasons. I think about what it would have been like if I had gotten to see the faces that weren't able to be a part of my little crew, but I find comfort in the fact that they were meant to be angels and are doing beautiful things every day where they are.
No, it isn't fair. No, there's no explanation sometimes. And, no, the hole left behind will never be filled in the same way. That's why this day was created. So those who have experienced, or are experiencing, this intense feeling of loss can reach out to others in the same place and be able to vent, cry, be angry and reach out to other parents.
I consider myself so fortunate to have been able to have four children, despite being told I'd never be healthy enough to carry a child, never mind getting pregnant in the first place. To those out there grieving today, our song choice is for you. Sarah McLachlin's haunting voice and heart-touching lyrics will, hopefully, help you remember that you are not alone.
May you find some comfort in getting through.
