On Love

When I think about this past year, it has been a happy one. I've learned a lot. I've lived a lot. I've loved a lot.

Not only have I been blessed with Mr. Potts and my family (especially the munchkins!), I've also been fortunate enough to make some wonderful friends.

We've shared a lot the past year with a birth at the beginning of 2010, a wedding, birthdays and holidays. We've also shared loss.

I never imagined that one of my closest friends would experience a loss so great, a grief so profound.

Her loss isn't mine and I certainly would never claim it as my own. But I find myself constantly thinking of her, thinking of her precious baby.

When you find someone that you love, be it husband, family or friend, your heart breaks some when they're hurting. And y'all. My heart is so broken for her.

I also find myself longing to comfort her, to let her know that she isn't alone. That I love her so dearly that my heart is broken for her.

I never thought that any of us would go through this; and yet, I can't imagine any of us facing it alone.

So to you, my friends, I raise my glass and share my love with you and all of my hopes for a wonderful 2011.

As I mentioned in a previous post. I've seen several people go through this. For a good friend of mine is was a year 1/2 ago. Baby was born with a arar heart defect and passed a day later. Her and huby are pregnant again. I say a prayer for them every night.

This is beautiful. Blessings to you in the new year. I can't imagine how it feels, but I know the pain someone else feels affects you so much.

I am so sad for your friend and to all of those who have lost babies and others they love. xo

I think about her often-this makes me so sad. And scared. You just never know. How is she doing? Has she talked to you about it?
