Today is a day of hope for BLM all over the world. There is a beautiful story behind today, you can read it here. Just wanted to let you all know I am thinking of your children today. Sending you love and peace.

So most of you don't really know my story unless we are friends on facebook so I am sending you an invitation to my newest blog dedicated to my daughter Genesis. That way you can learn a little more about who writes your babies names on the sidewalk, but more importantly, you can get to know the inspiration behind Names On The Sidewalk.... My dear daughter Genesis.

As much as I love being able to contribute in my little way to the baby lost mama (BLM) community, there is one aspect of writing the names that I don't like. After I have written the names and taken a photo, I have to wash the names away. Those colorful letters just smearing and running down the path... the names were too easily erased, just as these precious little lives. I see that rainbow water running down the path and into the street and it makes me sad and stop and think of each and everyone of our angels. I did notice something beautiful though. When the water first hits the chalk, their names become brighter and more vibrant and just gorgeous. I'd like to think our babies were like these letters... and like the stars in the heavens. Just before a star burns out I picture it getting even more beautiful than it was before, giving the world it's best shinning light for last. And as the water from the hose washes away the last of the letters, it also creates a rainbow in the air to remind me that there is hope. Sending my thoughts and love to you hurting parents.

I follow a lot of other blogs of parents that have lost children for support, as most of us do, and one babylost mama made a video of the ridiculously rude and insensitive things people say after you have lost a child(ren). I know at first thought it doesnt seem like something you would want to see, something that would make you grind your teeth and make you want to punch the person saying these things, but trust me... you wont feel that when you see this. I just had to share this and hopefully it made you smile. Perhaps we can share it to others who have not had a loss to educate them as to what NOT to say. Anyway, here you go: (btw you may want any young ones around you to leave the room as there is one curse word, just giving you a heads up)
