A generous spirit

This journey of Baby loss has been a crazy ride. I have lost a few friends along the way but also gained many. I feel like I have my own team of cheerleaders on the sidelines cheering me on, encouraging me, supporting me and sometimes catching me when I fall. One such person, who has been there from the very start, held a party for her boys 4th birthday a couple of weeks ago. It was great fun and a lovely way to finish a spectacular weekend of parties with friends we love.
As we were leaving, the kids were very lucky to be given little party bags to take home, they were super excited about that (their second for the weekend!). Our friend then came over to me and gave me a party bag that she had made especially for Lola! I was so touched!
This friend, Liv, is an inspirational mum on a rollercoaster journey of her own. Liv and her amazing little boy, Elliott, inspire us every day. They are special people that we feel blessed to have in our life.

awwwww....*sniff*.....thanks lovely lady.

We were so happy to have you *all* there with us to celebrate and even though Lola wasn't there physically, she was definitely there in our minds and she is so cemented in our hearts that she just couldn't be left out!

I'm glad to hear that you will be going easy on yourself around Christmas...a.k.a...Shitmas. We'll be thinking of you for sure.

BTW....You are the one who inspires my friend, YOU!
