Meaningful Quote

I keep a list of quotes that speak to me or mean something. I just was looking at the list and the following one stood out:

We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us. ~Joseph Campbell

I think I came across this one shortly after we lost Leia. We really were planning a life up to that point. My hubs and I would talk about where we wanted to take Leia for vacations and what "life experiences" we wanted for her. It's hard to let go of that and to think about new beginnings. I am not sure what the future holds for us at this point. So many unanswered questions and unknowns. To think of moving on and trying to start anew is difficult. I hope one day we can look back and understand more of what happened or at least be at peace with what has happened to us.

Love you little Leia and hope you know how much we miss you every single day.


  1. Ugh, sometimes I think the hardest part of all of this reeling from the fact the life you thought you would have with your baby, and the life that baby would have in turn, is gone. It's just so difficult to know it's all gone. :(

  2. that quote, sadly, sums it up perfectly!

  3. There are few days when I agree with this quote and find some peace in it. Other days, I just feel why should only some of us be reading such quotes. Everyone else who planned for a baby, had a baby and got to keep their baby forever. Life is not unfair for everyone (at least the degree varies).

  4. so very true that quote is. It is so hard to want to come to terms with the life you had planned for you and your little one is now gone.
    Thinking of you always

    Great talking to you yesterday
