We love. That is what we are called to do. And tonight I feel that paucity of my efforts at loving those around me. Tonight, I am heartbroken and inspired by this one mother who loved despite having every reason not to. The Story of Faith Hope is a blog by a mother who loved her daughter for 93 difficult and miraculous days. Baby Faith passed away Saturday but everyday was a miracle. And baby Faith was loved. Please read the post and read the rest of the stories there:
The best 93 days of my life…were spent with my daughter. Faith went to Heaven today. We spent the entire morning and some of the afternoon snuggling together in my warm bed. I told her that I loved her many times. I was holding her in my arms when she passed away. It was around 4:40 in the afternoon. I had just finished changing her diaper and I decided to pick her up and wrap a blanket around her. She made a very sweet smiling face and held it for several seconds… I thought it was very cute. I waited for her to take her next breath, but she didn’t. She looked up at me and opened her beautiful eyes, and I realized what was happening. I told her to go with Jesus. I told her that I loved her and that it was ok, that I would meet her in Heaven.
Please go read this, pray, and thank God that this baby had a mother who loved her. No matter what.
