A Weeping Christian: When Faith and Grief Collide

Mother’s Day

Another Mother’s Day here and (almost) gone… I never noticed until the last few years how many people tell you “Happy Mother’s Day” when they have no idea if you’re a mother or not. By people, I mean random strangers such as clerks in stores, waiters/waitresses, etc. I can only imagine what that must feel like to the woman who has struggled with infertility… or suffered a miscarriage… but I do know what it feels like to a mom who has buried a child. I am so thankful for the child I have left here on this Earth… for the blessing of being his mom. James and I continued our tradition of getting out of town for this bittersweet day; so, he took a little video to show me this morning to tide me over until I got home to see my sweet boy in the flesh. I couldn’t help but think of the video I have of Hannah Grace on the last mother’s day I spent with her… something about the two of them is eerily similar. Or, maybe it’s just that way in my mind since Caleb is the same age now that Hannah was then. See you what you think…

    Kimberly, this video is so precious. Your sweet little Hannah Grace was trying to be so cool and not show any emotion. Then, she really let it go – with so much sweetness, however.
    I appreciate your leadership in GriefShare. You are a blessing and I’m glad you’re continuing to be strengthened as well!
    Thanks for sharing your blogspot.
    Love in Christ,
    Mary
