The Saddest News

A very good friend of mine just lost her baby, this is her second miscarriage now...
She called me this morning to let me know and to ask me to tell all of our mutual freinds so that she didn't have to have that conversation a hundred times.
The sorrow that I feel for her is overwhelming.
She and her husband have been a part of my life for a very long time.
They helped me raise my daughter when I was working two jobs and going to school all at the same time. Three nights a week she spent the night at thier house with her husband's son(he was my friend long before they even met... but you know how it is once your married..at least for me.. my friends moved from male to female.. because that's just how it works...)
I feel so much for this family and would like to ask all of you to send all your thoughts and prayers to them.. they are in so much pain..and grief
I don't have much else to say right now... I feel guilty that I am able to have healthy children... I have no idea how to comfort her..
I am making stock right now and just got back from the store picking up veggies to make her the most healthful soup, because she had to birth the baby and has gone through labor.. even though she doesn't have the prize that you are supposed to receive in the end.
If anyone has ever dealt with this situation and you have advice or things that actually helped you to feel better I welcome yuor thoughts.
Thank you.
I am thankful, so very thankful for my precious children and having the opportunity to watch them grow into the amazing people that thye are.

She & her Family will be in my prayers & thoughts. I, like you, have never gone through that. I have several friends & a sister who has & it just breaks my heart. I can't even imagine how hard that would be.

Thames: I have this prayer posted on my blog. It is my favorite and one I will be saying for your friends this day:

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion — inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us,that in difficult moments we might not despairnor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will,which is Love and Mercy itself. Amen.

Oh, my heart goes out to your friends. I have never had to personally go through that. My sister and sister-in-law have. My advice is to be the loving friend that I'm sure you are! That's all that you can give them right now, but it's enough! Thoughts and prayers with them and with you!

Oh my goodness..I'm so sorry. I've suffered 3 miscarriages, one was particularly devastating as I was 13 weeks pregnant already. I know the hurt and sorrow she and her husband feels right now. My deepest sympathies and prayers go out to them. May they be blessed w/ a beautiful, healthy family in the future.

There's no way I could come up with the right words for your friend...I don't think there are any that can ease this kind of pain, but I hope they can find peace somehow. It may sound weird, but if something awful like this has to happen, it's nice to know that at the very least they have caring friends like you to help them through.

I am so sorry for your friend's loss. I can't imagine the pain she is feeling - you are good to be there for her, whether silent or with words. I'll say a prayer for her.
