After the funeral mass, we went out to dinner. It was a nice distraction. And by "distraction", I mean this:
Then we got home and I had a couple of glasses of wine and fell asleep on the couch. I was physically and mentally drained. I happened to wake up just as my DVR started recording "The Catholic View for Women" on EWTN. I record all of them, but honestly, rarely get a chance to watch. Although it's a wonderful show.
But last night, I believe I was meant to see it. It happened to be about - miscarriage. It was unbelievable. The women were talking about how, even in the pro-life movement, miscarriage is not properly dealt with. How lonely a loss it is, and how other people don't know how to respond to it. It's not treated as a "real" loss.
Omg, you guys. It's EXACTLY what I need at the EXACT right time. I still can't believe it. And you all need to watch it. I'm still trying to track down an electronic version. When I find it, I'll post it for sure. My main concern is being able to send it to my family so that maybe they'll finally *begin* to understand that I'm not the only one who is grieving from a miscarriage - that everyone does, you just don't hear about it.
If anyone has happened to see this, let me know! Especially if you have a link to the episode!
