I came across a shop on Etsy with beautiful typography & watercolor art by Franchesca Cox as I was searching for some sort of print I could purchase to frame with the pictures of our precious little ones. So many of her prints resonated with me…beautiful words that captured much of what my heart & mind haven’t quite been able to fully form as of late. Upon a bit more investigation, I found that many of her works are based off of the words of Angela Miller, an author who writes about life and the grief she experienced after the loss of her child.
Franchesca creates these lovely watercolor word collages…I’ve decided having one made for our little ones would be just what I’ve been looking for.
Here are a few of the quotes that encouraged & validated me…there are a few others I’ll share in upcoming posts.
~ A loss of life does not mean a loss of love.
~ A mother is not defined by the number of children you can see, but by the love she holds in her heart.
~ Mostly I am broken, but today I am thankful you were ever mine.
~ So breathe Momma, Keep breathing. Believe, Mama, Keep believing. Fight, Momma, Keep fighting for this truth to uproot the lies in your heart. You didn’t fail. Not even a little.
~ She wept, because life was so full. Of hurts. Of joys. Of the madness that danced between the two.
All so beautiful and true.
Blessed am I.
