This morning I received a special blessing at church. My priest said a special blessing for me as a mother for strength and grace to continue carrying this child and ultimately offer him or her to the Lord. It was a small and brief ceremony but so beautiful and touching. I received a soft white prayer shawl and a Willow Tree Angel of Prayer. It brought some much needed reinforcement to my weary heart today. A reminder that amidst such sorrow and pain there are always blessings to be had and to be recognized.
