The service was short, and I have no idea what the priest read. I was too busy holding the baby the only way I'll ever be able to on this earth - in her casket.

She got her way, though, about the blanket. The whole time I was making it, I kept hearing a teeny voice saying, "Mommy, I don't need a blanket, other babies need blankets". Well, I wanted her to have a blanket. and told her I'd make other blankets for other babies. Well, the blanket didn't fit in the casket. It was so tiny. it was a little shorter than an egg carton, but a little taller and a little wider. Everything else we wanted to include fit in.

Busker is napping right now. If he wakes soon enough, my BIL wants to take us for lunch. I'm resting until then. Please keep us in prayer.

Blessings to you,

Thank you, Michelle. We need them.

I will continue to pray for your family- as I am sure Daisy is whispering in God's ear as well.

I'm reading about your loss very belatedly. Even though time has passed . . . for you I know the pain isn't over. Please accept my heartfelt condolences and be assured I'll pray for your consolation!

I originally checked out your blog because I saw you were into books and crochet and they are also my two main passions, although I rarely write about crafting, I just do it. Then I saw PBXVI at the top of your favorite Catholics list and I was really amazed! Me 2!

God bless and I'm so glad I stumbled on your blog!

((hugs)) and prayers, booklady
