Taking a break for this week

I was all ready to post today, but I just got some extremely sad news of a friend who lost her baby. We are separated by thousands of miles as we are in different countries, and I really wish I could be there for right now, to hold her, to cry with her, to hug her, and to just rock her till the pain dulls a bit. I would like to NOT post anything knitting-related today, to commemorate this baby's passing. I don't want it to seem like nothing has happened, because I'm sure she and her husband feel like their world has ended. If anyone has suggestions on what I can do to help them from so far away, I would appreciate it. Just yesterday I was talking to her, telling her I would send knitted items through a mutual friend for the baby. Just yesterday.

I'm sorry guys. I'll be back next week God willing with a peppier update. As for today, please take a second and pray/send well wishes in your heart to my friend, her husband and their family.

Thank you.

  1. Losing a baby at any point, whether early or late in pregnancy, is truly a devastating experience and one that takes a long time to recover from. You sound like an amazing friend and what both she and her husband need now is knowing that they are being kept in people's thoughts. A loving letter would be one of the most comforting things you can do for your friend but please don't say things like "time will heal" or "you can try again soon." What she needs now is knowing that you understand that this moment and this baby is all that matters. I send her all warm wishes.
