Kelsey smiled sadly, “No, I don’t think so, Amy.” She replied.
I rubbed my eyes, trying very hard not to cry. Again. I had already cried for several hours. We were walking down the street next to my house, walking and talking.
Kelsey had called me at 2:00a.m. on Thursday, from the hospital. I was instantly worried. She had slowly explained that she’d had a miscarriage. And I threw up. On my kitchen floor. It’s Friday, and I haven’t been able to eat anything since, because I feel so sick.
I can’t understand why God would do this, it makes me so sick to think that he could have saved the baby’s life, but he didn’t. Kelsey and her husband, John, had been praying for children ever since they got married three years ago. And when Kelsey got pregnant everyone was so happy for her.
But now it seems like the world’s exploded in my face. There’s nothing to make it ok, no bandages and no magic words.
“Amy,” Kelsey said, “I want you to remember this, It isn’t punishment. There’s a reason in all things, even this.”
And Kelsey was so, so right. They weren’t magic words, they weren’t amazing. They just helped heal the sickness inside me.
