Pink & Blue Lines Soap
On Christmas day, they told me you were coming. I cried and cried happy tears at just the thought of you. In that very second that I learned of your existence, I fell in love with you. Madly in love. In nine months, I’d get to hold you and squeeze you. I’d get to kiss your sweet tiny forehead and gently wrap your tiny fingers around mine. I'd get to look into your eyes as yours intently explored the new world around you.
But then, just a few short days ago, I was told you weren’t coming. I was told that your tiny heart quit beating. I was told Jesus gets to hold you, squeeze you, and kiss your forehead instead.
I tried to remain strong in front of my precious daughter as tears fell down her cheeks. I tried to just remain quiet, but today, the tears won’t stop. My pain and grief are loud inside my head and heart. My soul was flooded with love for you and now that love won't be able to wrap itself around you. The love just sits in my heart with nowhere to go. All my hopes and dreams for you just sit silent now.
Oh, I know God has a plan, and I trust that, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it, understand it, or feel good about it in these moments of searing pain.
As a mother and grandmother, it's a hard place to be. My baby just lost her baby, and there's nothing I can do about it. I can't ease her pain, I can't make anything better, I just have to sit in it, completely helpless. It's one of those times when the only thing you can do is pray.
My hands needed something to do. So I made this soap. I made it for you and for all the rest of the tiny souls who were desperately wanted. I made it for all the tiny souls that are grievously unwanted, scraped, vacuumed, and pulled apart all because they were seen as an inconvenience. I made this soap for all the babies. The loved, the unloved, the wanted, the unwanted, the taken, the lost, the abandoned, the stolen, and the abused. I made it because you are a tiny human being whom God knew before He even started miraculously forming you in your mother’s womb. I made it because even at the point of conception, you were created for a purpose. I made it because you were not a blob, you are a baby. My precious, precious grandbaby #3.
I made this soap because I believe in all of the millions of pink and blue lines that are filling a heavenly land, just waiting for us to hold them, squeeze them, and kiss their foreheads. I made it because their lives matter.
