As I opened the car door to a "Walk to Remember" our babies I felt my feet hit the ground with pride.  My world open to such a place where we can find joy in sorrow.  Seeing so many people.. Mothers, Grandmothers.. Sons and fathers made me proud to be a part.

I saw with my eyes an open in awe and harmony.  1 in every 4 women have had a loss of some kind in their life.. and we are not going to keep silent any longer.  Our babies can not walk for themselves so we must walk for them.. to show them they are not forgotten...It struck me this Poem how fitting and true below.  Our Feet on the Street 2010 in numbers not to be counted but our steps to be heard like thunder for all those to understand.. remember.. and love each life as it is.. a gift to the world or to heaven.  Mesa Arizona stands proud of all of our children.  These are our feet on the street and it was breathtaking.

Guest House

This being human is a guest house

Every morning a new arrival.

A Joy, a depression, a meanness,

Some momentary awareness comes

As an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!

Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,

Who violently sweep your house

Empty of its furniture

Still treat each guest honorably.

He may be clearing you out for some NEW delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,

Meet them at the door laughing,

And invite them in.

Be grateful for whoever comes,

Because each has been sent

As a guide from beyond
