A Beautiful Gift. Mel's 77th Show & Tell

I have been in a sort of weird place these last few days, doing most of my writing in poetry form on various scraps of paper and in my journals, so I haven't been blogging as much as usual. I know I am a little late on posting, but I wanted to still participate in Show and Tell this week.

I was torn between two things that I wanted to share, and have opted to save the second for next week, so today I am going to talk about the beautiful gift that I received in the mail on Monday from Carleigh's Momma, Holly. Holly offered really beautiful giveaways last month in honor of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. My gift, and many of the others, were created by My Forever Child. I felt such joy when I received this gift in the mail, and of course, had to go up to the grave to share it with Peyton. While I was there I took these pictures.

Isn't it beautiful? This lovely necklace boasts a pink and blue (the picture just doesn't do it justice) Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Ribbon.




I have been wearing it with my little bootie charm that I was given by my mother in law at Peyton's funeral. This charm has her name engraved on the back.

  5. What a thoughtful gift. I am amazed at the generosity of some of the babylost mothers I have become to feel so close with. They give. They give not only of themselves but they give great thought and tenderness into creating these little treasures that come to mean so much to us. It's beautiful.

  6. Lovely. I can see Peyton has a pumpkin on her grave too. I took one to Florence, and was surprised no one else seemed to have one in the cemetery.

  7. I'm so glad that you like it!! And really, a picture doesn't do justice b/c I remember thinking this is so much more beautiful than the photo on the website. It really has a sparkle to it!!

  11. I bought that same exact charm after we lost our son, Ayden, to SIDS. I have just found your blog and have been reading it...understanding the pain. Ayden is our only child as well, so I relate with everything you write. We are early in our journey; it has been 2 months, so we are just taking it day by day.

    Peyton is absolutely beautiful....
