The small things....

Yesterday a plant died...not just any plant. This plant was given to us at the hospital, Wyatt's birth/Ryder's death. I have tried to hard to keep all the plants alive. I failed....;( It sounds weird but it killed me to put it in the trash. I cried...weird, I know. It's just the little things some days that trigger the pain...

This morning when I woke I listened to this song sung by a friend of mine and her brother....It's just what I needed this morning, please take a second and listen. They are so good and this song is awesome. Pretty sure I will be finding this CD pretty quick.

Visit "Our Happily Ever Afters" and don't forget to pause her playlist.


  1. Such a beautiful song! I just recently started following your page, after finding your story through Mama M's Mr. Wonderful contest. I believe it was part of God's plan. On Sunday July 24th, I gave birth to a little boy at 5 months and he was to little to survive. I know are stories are totaly diffrent. But I do feel that God used your story and your faith to help me through this difficult time. Yesterday I felt it was time to throw away the flowers that layed on his tiny little casket. It broke my heart even more. So I understand when you say the small things do hurt. I was diagnosed with PCOS and was told I could not have children. So when I went to a hospital while on vacation for what I thought was kidsney stones, they told me I was pregnant and in labor. So with not knowing we had not bought our child anything. We went and purchased a small stuffed frog to put in his casket and that too hurt. I was so upset that the only thing I was able to buy him was to put in his casket. Sorry this has turned so long. I was really just wanting to thank you for sharing your story because you have helped me keep my faith.

  2. Emily I am so sorry for your pain. I think about you often. I really do. I lost a baby at just 4 wks pregnant... and I know the pain I feel... I know that I think about the baby all the time.. certain things trigger it in me too... I can't even imagine your pain... At church on Sunday our pastor was talking about things like this... and he was talking about how things on this earth are not fair. but that if we live in light of eternity. focusing on that life that is to come and that is eternal we know God will redeem all things! he will redeem all your pain all your tears... he will restore you mommy heart! Im praying for you! I think your amazing.

  3. Not weird at all, friend. Sending you lots of prayers today.

  4. Emily, so glad you found my blog so I could find yours! Your birth story was beautiful and heart breaking all at the same time, and I am so glad you have an adorable boy to remind you of your precious loss. I know Ryder will always watch over you guys, and smile as his brother grows up in a loving, warm home!

  5. Love you Em! Thank you for sharing this song and your heart....

  6. I had a plant given to me by my work when my brother died. I kept it alive for quite a while and even revived it when I accidentally let it freeze outside! When it died it was like I was losing another part of my brother and I cried as well. I had to make my husband throw it away because I couldn't bear to do it.


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
