Today we remember...everyday we remember

Today I am stepping away from my 31 days of Homeschooling to blog about my sweet Eli and so many more gone too soon.  Today is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day.  It is a day we ask the world to stop and remember what never leaves our minds or hearts...Our sweet babies.  There is not a moment of any day that I do not think of my sweet baby boy.  I miss him so much sometimes that it physically hurts. He was not meant for this earth but he was meant to serve a great purpose.  He was given to us for such a brief time but made a huge imprint in our lives.

Tonight I will be lighting a candle at 7:00pm (in my time zone) in memory of Eli and all of his heavenly baby friends. The thought is that if you will light a candle in your time zone at 7:00pm there will be a continuous wave of light around the world in memory of these precious little ones. If you know someone who has lost a baby, let them know you are thinking of them today.  I promise you they will be so honored that you remembered their baby. 

My fellow BLM friend, Katy sent this etched glass candle for Eli's first heavenly birthday.  It is etched with Elijah. Tonight I remember  Eli and all of the precious little ones in heaven.
Much love, 


  1. I read your post Jennifer this afternoon, but couldn't comment at the time. I just wanted to let you know that my candle is lit in my kitchen. Thoughts and prayers with you.

  2. Thank you so much Lauren! That means so much!


  3. Hugs! I just know our babies are together in heaven. Thinking of you today and always...melissa
