Why Am I Thinking Of The Rolling Stones?

At a time when my heart is breaking?

We were calling the triplets Winkin, Blinken, and Nod, but discovered today that Nod passed away about two weeks ago.  It’s funny how you can become so attached to somebody that you haven’t met, but that’s the way of it.  While I mourn for the child that we almost had, we’re still excited that we have what seem to be two very energetic twins, and that’s a blessing.

I do believe that things happen for a reason, even if it’s only to teach us strength and empathy.  I wish that this wasn’t a lesson that I needed to learn, but that’s where the Stones come in.  You can’t always get what you want.  I just need to focus on the rest of those uplifting lyrics, and remember how much I believe in hope.

Thank you for your kindness concerning all of this. I’ve been a bit overwhelmed for a few weeks and haven’t been able to respond as personally as I would like to, but please know that you’re very appreciated. 🙂

  1. Mercedes, I am sorry about Nod but you are right, sometimes you get what you need and that is a good place to focus. I know the heart pain from experience. I am sending you much empathy, TLC and hugs. I wish you well as you prepare for life with Winken and Blinken.

    Much love,


  2. Oh honey, I’m so sorry. I believe you’re right though, everything happens for a reason. You’re also right to look at the bright side. Healthy twins is a wonderful blessing!

  3. I was already attached to little Nod as well. *tearing up as I type* No, I’m stopping my typing for a minute as my arms ache to hold him and comfort you…

    I’m so sorry. I wish I could make this better for you. *hugs*

    Prayers always, my friend.

  4. Mercedes, I don’t even know you, but my thoughts and prayers are with you… I am so deeply sorry for your loss. I will pray for comfort and peace for you during this time of grief…


  5. Somewhere, there’s a very small soul that knows they’re loved. Those feelings are never in vain.

    Wishing strength for you and yours, Mercedes.


  6. Mercedes:

    I believe that a child chooses the parents he wants because he’s aware of his coming journey into the world and what his destiny holds. Your child chose you and your husband, because even though his journey was a short one on earth, he knew you’d be the kind of parents to embrace his soul completely while he was here.

    I’m so sorry. Know that I wish you and yours – all the strength you need to get through this…


  7. I am so so sorry. I hope you will feel comfort in this time of sadness. I’m also very excited about your twins! So awesome! I hope they continue to be healthy and energetic and that your pregnancy goes well.

  8. Sorry to hear that, M…glad that the twins are doing well. (Tom and Huck Yardley? Bruce Banner and Peter Parker Yardley? How about Lion-O and Optimus Prime Yardley? Not to early to pick super suit outfits…) 🙂
