How do you get over it?

How do you ever get over losing a child? Is it ever going to be possible to live one day without thinking about him? He would have been about a week old today. I would have been a mom of three. I see families with three kids and it hurts.
His gravestone was laid out sometime this week. I went to the cemetery yesterday and there it was all shiny compared to the weather-beaten stones surrounding his.
I try to think of what people who have lost babies in worst scenarios than mine tell me--God doesn't take healthy babies. That helps for awhile, but I still miss him.
Rest in peace my Luke. I'm always thinking of you. I can't wait until I can hold you again.



  1. I don't even have words for this. The loss of any loved one is not something you get over. Please know that I will be praying for you and your family.

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. I cannot imagine losing a child, I am sure it is the greatest loss to endure.

  3. I am so sorry for your loss! Losing a child tears your heart out, and in many ways is the worst loss of all - parents should never have to bury a child. My heart and prayers are with you and your family.
