So grateful

I think that's the word that can best describe me today. Recently, on the stillbirth support forum I belong to, one of the ladies asked if any of the rest of us ever picture being reunited with our babies after we die. I have and do, and answered so. But there were a couple of ladies that mentioned that they don't believe in an afterlife, so they never have.

That just broke my heart. How can you get through the loss of anyone you love, let alone a baby, thinking that that is just the end? That there is no more?

I am [i]so[/i] grateful today for the knowledge I have of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and the hope that I have in my temple covenants. I'm so grateful to [i]know[/i] that I will receive my Cora back into my arms, and not only her, but any of the rest of my family I say goodbye to along the way.

I am so grateful for His Sacrifice that He gave for me, so that I can be reunited with my family here, and my Heavenly Father as well, and to grow and progress in that love forever.

Life would be too hard without that knowledge. I am grateful for it as well.

I picture the reunion with Branson almost every day...especially at night when I am especially lonely. I can't wait for the embrace that awaits! I too am so grateful for the knowledge that we have, and for the Savior who has made it all possible! I am sure Cora is so proud of her mommy for sharing this beautiful message with other mommies on that forum who need to hear this truth! Sending lots of love to you!
