painting in the sand
When we were doing the documentary "It's Okay to cry", GLENNA CASALME, Associate Producer told me about Carly Marie. She too is a bereaved Mum and her project to heal was to paint in the sand. http://carlymarieprojectheal.com/
I am not artistic like her, I can't duplicate her work, though my kids have written names and drawn love hearts in the sand.
I recall having taken these photos, and God is the ultimate artist and healer. God painted these scenes. Today, I attended our Sands monthly meeting. I go there to support newly bereaved mums because when I was newly bereaved, a bereaved mum of 17 years was there to comfort me. She was God's nurse and 22 years on, I am trying to fill that role.
We talked about Rainbow kids. I am thankful for my rainbow kid, Sam. Without Sam, I would not even have looked at this baby playing in a hole in the sand.
I want to thank Catherine Dodd of Australia, who is a bereaved mum herself. She told me about rainbow kids and reminded me of Carly's work.
