The Little Things

I got a card in the mail today. It was from the hospital where we had Ella. The birth unit sent a card remembering the anniversary of Ella's birth/death. It was signed by the two nurses who took care of Ella and I. What a thoughtful gift for me today. I'm sure it's routine for them and it was as simple as signing their names but it brought such a flood of emotions.  These two ladies held my baby. They washed her and cuddled her. They saw me at the rawest I've ever been. It took me back for a bit. But more than anything it made me so so thankful that my baby has not been forgotten.

The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.  Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.
Deuteronomy 31:8
