Sometimes I'm so used to holding all the tears in that sometimes when I want or need them to flow, they can't. Those are the times I listen to the CD that we made to be played during Lillian's service. I have since gathered other songs on my playlist and I ran across two yesterday that I wanted to share:
1. Rascal Flat's - Let It Hurt - This is from their new album and I feel like it's the Loss Mommy/Daddy Anthem.
2. Matt Hammitt - All Of Me - This is from his album Every Falling Tear. He is a Christian singer, and while I am not a religious person at all, I find this entire album speaks to me and is peaceful. Those of you who listen to Christian music, he is the lead singer of Sanctus Real. I googled him and he wrote it when his infant son was fighting for his life from an congential heart defect. Anyways, this made me think of when I was holding Lillian for those 17 hours I got with her, skin to skin and just wanting to be present with her. This made me think of all the PGAL mom's and all of us considering the possibility of getting PG again. I encourage you to look up why he wrote this song. He realized he was holding back the love he had out of the fear of losing him. Right now, the thought of being pregnant again has me gripped with fear....http://www.klove.com/music/artists/matt-hammitt/
I hope you all enjoy...and do you have any others to share? Ones of comfort, peace, anger or ones that help let it flow?
