I Will Carry You

I thought I would post this song for those who may have not heard it yet. I have not come across it on anyone's music player. The words are amazing. It is exactly how I feel about Janessa. It was written by Scott & Angie Smith and is sung by the group Selah.

So take a listen but first grab a tissue.


I Will Carry You

There were photographs I wanted to take
Things I wanted to show you
Sing sweet lullabies, wipe your teary eyes
Who could love you like this?

People say that I am brave but I'm not
Truth is I'm barely hanging on
But there's a greater story
Written long before me
Because he loves you like this

I will carry you
While your heart beats here
Long beyond the empty cradle
Through the coming years

I will carry you all my life
And I will praise the One whose chosen me
To carry you

Such a short time
Such a long road
All this madness
But I know
That the silence
Has brought me to His voice

And he says...
I've shown her photographs of time beginning
Walked her through the parted seas
Angel lullabies, no more teary eyes
Who could love her like this?

I will carry you
While your heart beats here
Long beyond the empty cradle
Through the coming years

I will carry you
All your life
And I will praise the one whose chosen me
To carry you

Malory, that is a beautiful song. Thank you for sharing. We will carry our babies all our lives and will know the full extent of his love one day.

I honestly thought about stopping the whole "blogging" thing this week. That's how yucky I felt. I felt like every time I would get on here I was constantly reminded that my son is gone and that bad things happen to good people. It was like re-opening the wound or something. But then I got a couple of really nice comments, including yours, that made me realize that we all need each other.

No one - not my mom, my husband, or best friend can comfort me like you and all the other ladies on here do. I know that they try really, really hard and I appreciate all that they have done for me but no one can truly
relate. My sweet husband would be the closest but even he admits he falls short in knowing fully what I am going through.

Feeling our little ones kicking us for weeks on end, then going through the delivery knowing the heart-wrenching outcome, and then recovering after a full delivery with all the hormones...yes, it is only us ladies that can relate to each other fully and for that I am forever grateful.

At a time when I feel utterly alone, I take great confort in knowing that I am not at all alone. Although I wish that we were relatable in other, less painful ways - we are still nevertheless, connected.

Thank you for your kind words my dear blogging friend, they were very much needed and appreciated.

Sarah...you are more than welcome. I am glad you will be staying here with us. You are right, we need each other more than we can put into words.

I love this song (and I actually have it on Carleigh's playlist). Angie actually let me use this song for Carleigh's funeral before it was released and I'm so thankful she was so kind. I listened to this song a lot after getting Carleigh's fatal diagnosis and I cried many tears.
