Listen and Learn.



I know I've posted about this video before, and I tend to stay away from watching it because I sob until my whole body aches.

But.

Listen to the words of this song. It touches your soul in a tender way, and truly describes my feelings. Makes me want to dig my guitar out and write a song, such as this, like I used to.

I very much love that song. It makes me cry every time I hear it. It's so perfect as to how I feel and our journey.

sobbing until my whole body aches....for you, my dear friend.

That is a beautiful song. I have seen it before and the grace with which they accept their daughter's fate touched me deeply every time. Just as you do.

Amazing! So beautiful. So heart touching.

Thank you for that. I have never heard/seen it before. This week marks the 2 year anniversary of my niece's birth, death, and funeral (she also had anecephaly). Watching that made me cry from the sadness, but also from remembering the joy she brought to our entire family, the love we all shared because of her, and the strength we observed from her and her parents. She is never forgotten, and our lives are richer for knowing her, no matter how little time she was here. I'm sure your son will give you the same.

God Bless.

Beautiful song. My heart just aches for you and for all the parents that must experience this same pain. All I can say is thank God for the Gospel of Jesus Christ which gives us all hope and comfort. (((hugs)))

I've seen it before, and heard the song, and omg...it kills me. We've talked about this. Ugh.
I'm sorry, honey. I really am. I am crying for you, not just little Aubrey.

Holly said...

Just wanted you to know that someone is thinking about you! xo

Oh the Mickey Mouse ears, every time it gets me. I don't know why, it's just one of those odd things I guess. A truly amazing song and story. And you play the guitar?! Seriously?! Whip that baby out!

Wow, I'd never seen that before, but how powerful. I don't know who can watch that and NOT cry. I'm praying for your family. Tell Hannah I came to Spring Creek on Friday and missed seeing her.

I wish I could hug you . . .

When I first heard about Isaac, I stumbled upon this video.

My heart hasn't quite been the same since.

Love to you . . .

Oh my goodness. The ache is huge...

Makes me think that a wonderful photographer might be something you and Andrew might want... Just a thought.

Cheryl said...

Thinking of you...

Hi Misty. I just stumbled upon your blog - I can't remember how I found you. I think that God brought me here to pray for you. I've been right where you are now. I had a son in 1992 with anencephaly. His name was Samuel.

It's a road that's hard to travel, but it's also a road that is full of blessing - I know that God will show you the blessings too.

Come and visit me and get in touch with me if you'd like to.

I love this video. I saw this on youtube when I was pregnant with my little girl. I cried and cried and cried. I cry every time I watch it. I am sorry that you are going through such a hard thing right now. I wish there was something I could do for you!

I get this. My baby would be one 2 weeks ago.

Hang in there.
