Time is something I seem to have very little of.
I find myself wishing for more time.
But time is something that my friend Jennie wishes she had more of with good reason. She wishes she had more time with her beautiful daughter Matilda Mae.
It breaks my heart to think of Baby Tilda but I do.
Every single day.
Even on days when I'm busy there will be at least once that I think of her. And I think of Jennie. I think of how little time they had together.
A mere 9 months.
No time at all.
Today would have been Tilda's 2nd birthday.
Today SHOULD have been Tilda's 2nd birthday.
But it wasn't meant to be.
There is absolutely nothing that anyone can do to bring Matilda back to Jennie's loving arms but there are little differences we can make. We can be there to support Jennie in person or online when she needs us. We can be sympathetic to how us moaning about how bad our days are would upset Jennie.
We can also continue to raise lots of money.
In the 15 months since Matilda Mae passed away and well over £30,000 has been raised for The Lullaby Trust.
How incredible is that?
The Lullaby Trust are a small charity but their work is invaluable is helping support bereaved families and helping to promote safer sleep for babies.
This month there are two events that you can get involved in. I've already posted about the 'Mile In Memory of Matilda Mae' (Sat 17th May) and the 'Baby Tilda Barn Dance' (Sat 31st May) with details of how you can help. Even if you can't attend the events in Warrington, Cheshire and Egerton, Kent then you can still make a donation to The Lullaby Trust in memory of Matilda Mae.
Those of you who are coming along to the events, I look forward to seeing you.
Hug your little ones tight tonight.
Time goes too fast.
Time can be cut short.
Time is something Matilda did not have enough of.
Happy Birthday baby girl.
