Today I was going to write a overly sappy post about how this year has been hard but in the end it redeemed it's self blah blah blah.
Then I learned early this morning my dear friend lost her baby. Heartbreak. It feels so unfair, I want to shout at the universe "you screwed up!". She is such a wonderful woman and although I can't say I know her husband well, if he's lucky enough to be married to her I'm sure he's amazing too. I've cried on and off most of the day. I feel so helpless, there is nothing I can do to even remotely sooth her pain, her loss, her heartbreak. I want so desperately to help her, each of my tears is another prayer to God to comfort her during this horribly sad time.
Having a child is the one thing in a woman's life that you just assume will work out naturally and be easy yet it turns out for so many it's a huge struggle. It's a wonder humanity goes on at all.
So today I'm a bit down for her. I'm considering postponing my baby-related posts for a while out of respect for the things she is going through, just a heads up.
