We’ve not reached an anniversary yet or even her birthday, we’re 6 months 2 weeks and 2 days into losing our precious daughter.
We released Balloons for her when she should have been born (I was booked for a caesarean section). And did nothing but cry in her original due date. Was far too raw to be able to cope with doing anything.
The evening after she died we just didn’t know what to do, how to act, what to say to each other or to anyone else. So we requested that if our friends wanted to, to light a candle, ta make sure her first few days were warm and lit.
We knew she reached the stars the night she died, as she shone brightly in the sky watching over her big sister and brother’s rooms.
So the picture I’m including in today’s Capture your Grief is a few pictures of the lit candles that were posted onto my Facebook wall.
