Currently there are several friends from college that are expecting a baby at any moment. I am so happy for them and joyful that in a few weeks time they will all be welcoming a new baby into their families. A year ago I probably would not have commented I was joyful. My heart has been filled with sorrow after losing our son, Christopher in-utero due to a cord injury. HE was perfect, beautiful, and we had so many hopes and dreams for him in our world. I was in disbelief for days after breaking the news to his four adoring siblings and to witness his funeral mass and burial. HE opened my heart to feel sorrow. HE mended it with the help of our Mother in heaven.
Imprint, O Lady, thy wounds upon my heart, that I may read therein sorrow and love--- sorrow to endure every sorrow for thee, love to despise every love for thee. Amen.
