Day 18

I sleep in again today until around 10am. I am still feeling tired but I get up. I have lunch planned with my new angel mum friend. I was a little nervous about meeting her but excited at the same time. To meet someone who is going through the same grief as me was going to be comforting.

I pack some food for our picnic lunch and head off to the beach. We have decided to meet at a beautiful park at a headland overlooking some of my favourite beaches. It is a little windy when I arrive but warm enough to sit outside without feeling too cold. The water is quite settled and you can see out for miles across the ocean.

We have a beautiful picnic and talk for hours. We are both in awe of each other. The strength it took to give birth and just how we have both overcome losing our first children. Her daughter has been sending many signs back showing she is watching over her through rainbows and other ways. This is so lovely to hear as I know I can feel Hamish’s presence and I know there are times when he is near. We are even lucky enough to see some whales breaching in the distance. Today has brought me more peace. I don’t feel as alone in my grief.

Thank you Hamish for such a beautiful day. I hope you are enjoying time with your new friend Mia.
