My friend lost her baby.  She was just starting her second trimester.  My heart hurts so badly for her.

Matthew's life was a blessing; his passing tilted my world.  He made me want to be kinder, gentler, more sensitive.  He helped me learn to pray.

Luke's life is a blessing.  He makes me celebrate joy in his baby and toddler discoveries.  He soothes his mother's heart.

This baby's life was a blessing.  S/he opened hearts to more love.

All these babies have been blessed, blessed to have known the mother love of my friend.  Dear Lord, please comfort my friend now.
