Proof that life is treasured, and valuable no matter how short truly lies with Harry Moseley. This young boy touched the world of Twitter with his fundraising efforts despite being very poorly. Many people around the world followed his story, and last night Harry’s family posted a tweet that said
My brave inspirational boy fell asleep in my arms at 11.10pm. Suddenly our world is a very dark and cruel place
Within two hours #RIPHarry was trending on Twitter. Tears fell from my eyes reading some of the tweets. It always seemed that 140 characters was such a small space to say anything, but it becomes massive when people the world over are using their 140 characters to express their sympathy and admiration.
If even half of the people tweeting about Harry donated to his cause, many more children may be cured of cancer, many families saved from the heartache of losing a child.
I am feeling really low and really sorry for myself today. I just want to know if happy ever after exists. Maybe I am spending all this time waiting to be happy forever. Maybe this is it. Maybe happy ever after is just something that ends a fictional children’s story, added there to help the little ones not lose hope in the world too early.
I was in floods of tears tonight because the lid fell off the squash bottle and it went all over the floor and in the cupboards. That’s not normal, and it’s certainly not normal for me. But I have just had enough now. I just feel like I am holding onto the threads of something that is rapidly unravelling.
So what can I do about it? I should know this, I’ve done it time and time again. Well let’s do it again. What would make me happy in this moment? (Forget the happy ever after).
I would like to
- not feel sick and slightly panicky every moment of every day
- To feel in control of my life
- To have more than enough money every day, every week, every month, every year and by more than enough I mean more than enough to live the lifestyle that I want for me and for my family.
- To feel secure, loved, held, and happy
- To have a clean, organised, tidy home which I enjoy living in
- To make a difference to other peoples lives
- For people to take part in and respond to my work
- To be ok with my life and where I am at
- To have things go to plan
Silent Sunday is a concept used by many bloggers. We are adopting the concept for the duration of pregnancy and baby loss awareness month. Each Sunday we will invite our parents and families affected by baby loss to share a photo of their choosing on their own blogs and link it to ours.
A photo can replace 1000 words. I am sure that all of these photos will be moving. Here is my first Silent Sunday post.
Please post your link using the link list tool below. It can be a photograph of anything at all related to baby loss, a photo or a graphic. Please be aware if you post photos of your baby we cannot protect them.
