Being Postitive

Loosing Peter was without a doubt the most difficult and tragic event to ever happen in my life.  This pregnancy is also difficult, but I am trying to just be positive.  I am not one of those people who believe life has to be perfect.  Life is not perfect, right.  If life were perfect Peter would  be running around me.  Life is not perfect but instead of letting it get me down or take over my life I accept God's will for me accept His perfection for me!  My life is His design.   

What I am saying is this blog is meant to help families, especially Catholic families, move forward after they loss a child at any point in life stillbirth baby, infant, toddler, preschooler, and right on up to adult.  We are trying to move forward, not forget our lost family members.  We want to help people take the memory of their loved ones into their journey forward. 

I shared singing a joyful noise as a positive way keep us going.  We also have a Peter garden in the spring/summer.  I will say I have more things I need to work on daily.  One being getting up when my alarm clock goes off in the morning. 

What does your family do to stay positive?  Is there any thing your family is working on to be positive? 

We remember our Peter Francis now and always. 


  1. staying positive after a loss is very hard! I lost my first pregnancy very early on, and when I was pregnant with Alexander I was afraid I would loss him too. After losing Alexander, I was scared being pregnant with both Julia and Elizabeth. one day at a time, sometimes one moment at a time is all you can do. (oh and as a little boy named Cole said just days before he died "Smile, Be Happy"!


    1. Oh Nancy you know it! Staying positive one moment at a time! Smile, Be Happy that is exactly what we are working to achieve. It is hard but we have to try and begin again when we fall! You know that journey. We are living it!

  2. I'm so sorry for your loss. I think staying grateful helps me stay positive so I've been working on that.

    I also desperately need to work on getting up when my alarm goes off!

    1. Thanks Lara! You are so right staying grateful! Great perspective. Thanks!
