Good night, sweet prince: And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest...
-William Shakespeare

It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.

3 long years

My Dearest William,

It's been 3 long years without you. I miss you more than words can say and yet, I feel you with me everyday.
I know you are watching out for the little one growing inside of me now and I know you will help this child make it here safely. It's not going to ease my pain. You will always be my first born!
In 2 days it's your Birthday, the family is gathering as we always do, we will have cupcakes this year because what's a celebration of you without cake? Of course, it's what your Daddy wants too!
I have a feeling this Birthday of yours is going to be a different feeling for me this year. I'll be sure to tell you all about it when I talk to you on your day!
More than the Sun, the Moon, and the Stars, Mommy and Daddy love you and miss you!

Yes, I didn't have a chance to post until today, but I read this on Monday and thought of your little William Henry. Sunday was the 11 month anniversary of my own William's (William Scott)loss. I had him stillborn alongside his surviving twin sister in April. The best advice I was given on living with grief and new life was this: that experiencing joy is not a betrayal of grief - nor grief a betrayal of joy. They can and do exist simulataneously in many of mixed up as it is.

Blessings to you,

I have not stopped by your blog in such a long time and I just wanted to express how happy and hopeful I am for you and your growing baby.
I recently put a post up on my blog about time and how it brings change which may interest you. This is a hopeful time and I wish you the best.
