Sad times call for creativity as distraction

Well, it's been a tumultuous month, to say the least. When we got the news on December 28th that we were expecting our 8th baby, our family was overjoyed. A few weeks ago, I started having some concerns about the pregnancy. Call it mother's intuition - something didn't seem right to me. Yesterday, an ultrasound confirmed the presence of a congenital anomaly, and that our baby's heart was no longer beating. It probably stopped between the 9th and 10th week. I am preparing myself for a miscarriage, and my husband, children, and I grieve this loss deeply. However, even in this, we will praise and trust in God.

Today, my desire was to consider how very blessed I am. So, I designed some things to inspire peace, and to celebrate and spread love to those around me.

I hope these designs bless you.
