For the 3rd time I had to sit my children down and tell them that we had lost another baby.
I prayed for inspiration and help.
I came across this video on the Mormon Channel.
We watched the video and then talked about how amazing our body's are and how
they are prefect for getting us threw this life, for this mortal period.
Then we talked about how sometimes someone is so pure, they only need a body for a short time.
For the 3rd time we talked about this, for the 3rd time I had to tell them we lost a baby. This is one area that doesn't get easier with practice. So hard. I am so grateful to have a knowledge of the gospel, to feel the spirit in my home. To know that I have a Father in Heaven and that my Savior truly did atone for man kind. I am grateful that I felt this little man so strongly before he was taken from this earth. You will be missed little one.
Justin told my kids this quote by Joseph Smith.
"The Lord takes many away even in infancy, that they may escape the envy of man and the sorrows and evils of this present world, they were too pure, too lovely, to live on this earth; therefore, if rightly considered instead of morning we have reason to rejoice as they are delivered from evil, and we shall have them again… the only difference between the old and the young dying is one lives longer in heaven and eternal light and glory than the other and is freed a little sooner form this miserable wicked world”
I will see you again and hold you someday.
Send love to your siblings and remember to tell Levi happy birthday in February.
