Somewhere Over the Rainbow

More than an Omission

  • Oh Libby...I get you.  I am so sorry you had to have that conversation and that it was more painful than most.  I think you handled it as gracefully as possible and sometimes, you have to hold Marco tightly to you, keeping him in your heart, not sharing him with strangers not because you're ashamed but because you need to protect yourself and your memory of your beautiful boy.

    And I know he understands.  Marco is there, cheering you on each time you share his story and each time you don't.

    So much love to you,


  • hugs.  Sorry you had to go through that. I had a horrible situation happen the other day to with a new person I met.  Just when you think you have it figured out and ready for anything...a new social scenerio pops up.  Those who matter know,and  love all 3 of your kids. Nicki

  • I know that must have been a tough moment. Tommie said it best: Marco is always there- cheering you on each time you share and each time you don't. Lots of hugs to you.

  • Oh Libby... I'm sorry. I'm sorry you feel the way you're feeling after all of that. Please know that Marco knows and always has, just how loved he is. I think you found yourself in a unique situation and I think you handled it the best you could given the circumstances.

    Sending you big hugs and lots of love,


  • So sorry you had to deal with that. Just shows how much more can be behind a conversation than we realize. I agree on the omission and sharing aspect of it. Its only when I get the snide comments about Abbey being a singleton that it really gets to me.

    Love and Hugs


  • Hugs.  I always find myself judging time people I'm having the conversation with weather or not I talk about Trinity.    Sometimes I find it hard when I don't include her but its a way of protecting my heart.  I get it!    Hugs and love to you and all three of your kiddos!

    Much Love


  • Libby, it's happened more times than I care to count. Unfortunately, there will be more awkward moments ahead. You did great! Marco knows how you feel about him. He's never too far from your thoughts:)



  • Libby, I understand how you feel. Just the other day at a meeting with a new "higher up" we were talking about our families. And I said I have two kids. And every time I say that, I feel a twinge in my heart. But it wasn't the right moment to open up.

    Like my sons, I am sure that Marco understands that you are selective in whom you share with. And that is OK. You are protecting his memory -- and your heart - until the time is right.

    love and hugs.
