Welcome to my Awesome Angel Giveaway!

To celebrate my new blog makeover and thank you for stopping by this week I will be giving away the following items:

A ‘Bless This Child’ mini-ornament by Serenity

A resin Angel ornament

An Angel Frame pin

A Guardian Angel frame

Three copies of The Christmas Box by Richard Paul Evans. Originally written as an expression of love for his two daughters, the author never intended for it to be published. Many Christmas seasons later, this touching tale relates the meaning of Christmas in a profound but simple way. This book was the inspiration for the many angel statues around the country which are places to remember a child who has died.

A square neck tag with a heart image by Steel My Heart

If you do not know this company take a look at their site. They have neck tags, key tags, car window stickers, and about a zillion different items that can be customized with different ‘personalities’ and they do have images that include a baby with a halo or a boy or girl angel with wings.

To enter this giveaway simply do the following:

Leave a comment in this post. You can say something you wish someone had told you, something you found to make things easier, or just say hi. If you don’t want to comment you may just send me an email at and enter that way instead.

Entries will be accepted between December 21-midnight December 28th. Be sure to check back before January 1st to find out if you are one of the 8 winners.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope this week is gentle for you. ((hugs))emily

Something I found to make things easier: blogging, talking, and scrapbooking about my daughter *thanks to your great scrapbooking quotes!!* Also we participated in March for Babies and raised money in memory of our little angel- that helped a lot!

Finding a safe space where I could express myself honestly was what helped me the most. Art was (and continues to be) an incredible release for me.

Your site looks so beautiful Emily. Thank you again for including the sweet pea project. Hope today is gentle for you.

I really LOVE the "Bless This Child" silver ornament. I always envision angels watching over my sweet son, B. W., sort of like the ornament depicts.

There are lots of ways (some good, some terrible) to cope with the absense of someone we love. For me, those things change as I reach different points in my grief process. Fundamentally, though, I will always need my husband and a couple of close, trustworthy other who will allow me to talk about my son, my grief, his absense - or even just say his name.

Though there are many poems/quotes that I simmer on, here is one from Mark Twain that helps me remember I am not crazy...

To die one's self is a thing that must be easy, & light of consequence;
But to lose a part of one's self--well, we know how deep that pang goes,
we who have suffered that disaster, received that wound which cannot heal...
It is one of the mysteries of our nature that a man,
all unprepared, can receive a thunder-stroke like that and live.
It will take mind and memory months
and possibly years
to gather together the details
and thus learn and know the whole extent of the loss.

Thank you for sharing your blog with us. The most important thing that helped me through was talking about my daughter. People didn't want to in fear of hurting me but I wanted to!! Wishing that more people would mention her name. It brings a lil tear to my eye and a lil smile on my face to hear people speak her name. I LOVE your site!! And the angel ornaments are BEAUTIFUL!!
