3 Months

Today it has been 3 months since Carleigh was born. I miss her a lot.

We went out to the cemetery after church and, of course, her headstone is still not up. Anthony plans on calling again this week.

Driving away from the cemetery the song Homesick from MercyMe came on and it brought tears to my eyes. I'm definitely homesick.

He's also going to call about our NILMDTS photos since we still haven't gotten those yet. I just wish we'd get them already. It shouldn't take 3 months to get those pictures. A few weeks, yes, but not 3 months.

I've just been working on her scrapbook a little today and remembering her.

I love you, Carleigh!

Holly, I cannot believe it has already been 3 months. I really hate they haven't gotten her headstone up and finished yet. And the pictures, you're right, it should not take 3 months. That seems like a really long time to get these things done. I'll keep praying that they will hurry and get these things done for your family. It's not right to keep you waiting for so long.

That song always makes me cry - in a happy sort of way. I'm looking so forward to the day that I'm with my children again, and I know you're looking forward to that day with Carleigh too.

You're on my heart Holly.
Homesick with you~
Tenderly,
Lynnette

Your pain is so new and so very sad. I don't ever want to know what it feels like to visit the grave of my child. My heart is with you and your family. Holly,
I would really like to send you a handkerchief from my other blog.

I'm sorry that you are missing your little girl today. I wish you much peace and grace today. Thank you for sharing your day with all of us.

3 months is absolutely ridiculous.......I can't believe that they have yet to put it up........

I can't even imagine how hard it must be to go up there with hopes that it will be there and then for it not to be... :0( ......My heart breaks for you.....

Rebekah said...

First off I'm so sorry you don't have Carleigh here with you. I know it's hard waiting on the headstone and such and just seeing the bare ground. In some ways though actually getting it up makes things feel so much more permanent... no matter what it's hard... I'm sorry you're stuck waiting though, I hope everything comes soon.
Peace & love to you!

I'm sorry it is taking so long for you to get her marker up and ALSO the pictures should NOT take that long-------hopefully very soon. :)

That's just annoying! I hope it all gets taken care of soon. I can't believe it has been 3 months already. Man.

Stephanie said...

Oh Holly I've been thinking about you today. I knew today was the 3 month mark. HUGS, oh I wish I could give you real hugs. I hope they get the headstone soon also.

Linda said...

Sending love your way today sweet Holly. I know everything is still so fresh on your heart and mind, and still hurting.

Praying for you!

I know today was a hard one for you and I hope you were able to feel Carleigh in your presence.

I agree that 3 months is too long to wait for your photos. I have always heard and seen most people receiving them much earlier than that. It's frustrating and hard to accept, knowing that is one the few tangible things you could have from your time with Carleigh. Even though you will always have your memories of that day, having photographs always make us feel better. They help to remember more lividly. I hope you receive them soon along with her precious headstone.

Thinking of you!

I am so sorry that you have to go through this Holly! Give them heck till they put up her marker!

Holly I am so very sorry that you are going through this. That is way to long to have to wait for either things. Bless your heart. I hope your hubby gets things straightened out soon and you get your birthday wish of your precious angels headstone and her beautiful pics. Big Hugs........

MommyIvy said...

It doesnt seem like it has been three months already! I cant believe you still havent gotten those photos. The headstone I can b/c those people are always slow.

Jennifer Bovee said...

Still praying for you Holly!

Celia said...

Holly, I thought of you so very often yesterday, knowing what yesterday way for you. It was sort of an anniversary for both of us....3 months for you....8 weeks for me....
The emotions are so bittersweet. I think that song perfectly embodies the way we feel. We are homesick to be with our babies again....to be in heaven at all....and our hearts long for it so much.....Good song.
I will continue to pray that Carleigh's headstone will be up soon and that the photographer will deliver your pictures quickly. It should not have taken this long....

Misty said...

You know. When I read that. Especially about the photos. It made me ANGRY. There is NO excuse for 3 months. Maybe you need to get in touch with the NILMDTS coordinator in your area. You should have those picture.
