October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Rememberance Day. I found this poem/letter that the Share Group mailed out to me and it struck quite a cord with me.
I have taught you about love in a way nothing else possibly could. Don't waste this lesson. Use the love you still possess to give to others. Comfort others who've had a loss; do it in my memory. And beside that, a little bit of me lives on in each person you touch. You have the power to make my legacy one I would be proud of.
Light a candle, buy a rose, and perform an "act of kindness". Simple things. But then, our love is so great; no rememberance could ever be large enough to show how much you love me. For true love has no boundaries.
Contemplate the many gifts I've left, and how I've affected your life in a good way. I've shown you how precious life is and have given you a greater appreciation of it. I've let you discover how strong you really are. I hope my short time here has made you discover what's really important. Has it made you a better person? I hope so!
Your faith has been tested and, hopefully, strenghtened. I hope your heart is filled with peace. Most of all, know that our love is eternal!
