I just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your sweet comments and emails to the news of my miscarriage. I have been seriously overwhelmed by all the love and support my family and I have received over the past few days. Every single note, every single phone call, every single way that you have reached out has been such a huge encouragement and blessing; I am struggling to even put my gratefulness into words. Your kindness has offered me so much comfort and peace.
It may be awhile before I feel up to responding to you individually, before I feel up to writing and answering the phone. But please know that I am not ignoring you. I am just processing this in the best way I know how, day by day, moment by moment. I am heartbroken, but I feel the Lord so very near right now, and part of that is just in the outpouring of love from each of you.
We are being so taken care of in such beautiful and tangible ways. Sweet friends are bringing us meals every day (as well as Jamba Juice, flowers, treats, and shoulders to cry on!) and one of my dearest friends, who knows the pain of loss in a very real way herself, is here making sure I get the rest I need during the day while Erik is at work.
I am so thankful for all of you and love you all so much.
