It has been seven years.
Seven long years since I held a baby girl.
Seven short years since my last little girl left this earth.
This year, I grieve hard. Harder than I have in a long time.
You would think that having a baby girl after all this time would be such a joy.
But, it is also difficult. It brings up emotions that have spent seven years lying dormant. Many of those emotions hurt.
I wish I could explain it, but there are no words layered enough to describe where I am.
It’s a pain amidst joy.
It’s an ache amidst blessing…
as I hold one daughter and grieve another.
