A soft gown for a sweet angel
I can't express my thoughts and feelings. There are not words. It has been such an honor to be chosen to knit a sleeping gown, and a burial gown for such an amazing spirit. One that was much to strong for this world, so will be born still. The ache in my heart for my dear friend is so tangible I could touch it. She labors now. It won't be long before she brings this beautiful, perfect baby girl into the world. Her heart and soul will shatter as she returns her daughter back to the arms of her Mother Earth. She will heal physically, but her heart will never be fully whole again. Her arms will be burdened with emptiness. I have felt pain of my own through the loss of my 12 angels, but I have never experienced a loss so great. A living Christ hears her cries and feels her anguish. He has felt this exact pain. He is the only one to turn to that truly understands.
I am the domestic goddess here in my universe to the perfect man (yes, they do exist), 5 children, and the rest of the farm. I spend my days enjoying tasks such as changing and/or wiping bums, noses, and mouths. I cook, clean (really that is an out and out lie) and play ref to the domestic WWF. I do not get paid vacation, yet dread retirement. I hope to let other domestic Goddesses know that they are not alone, and there is someone out there that is less perfect than they. So sit back and let me make you feel good about yourself.
