After Anabelle - Raising Rainbows
Heartbreak. Joy. Death. Life. But most of all Love.

Sacred Space

This is where we wrote Anabelle's eulogy. 

Keeper's Pond on the mountain pass near Blaenavon in South Wales. 

Throughout our pregnancy with her we had used this mountain pass between Blaenavon and Abergavenny often. A prettier route than the alternatives from the hospital and our home. 

After she died it became the quiet space we needed to sit for hours. We sat for hours and we wrote. Everything we wanted to be said at her funeral; all the joy in our pregnancy, how excited we were about her, how in love with her we had been from the beginning, how very special it was to find out we were having a girl, how very precious she was and so very wanted and loved. 

This place became Belle's Mountain. 

Since we lost Anabelle we continue to find ourselves at Keeper's Pond.  We've been here just to walk, just to sit, just to take a pause. We've been there to send balloons on her birthdays, we've been there to attempt sending lanterns in the darkness of the night at 00:08 and mark the moment she was born. We've been there just to watch shooting stars. 

It is often very cold and very windy at Keeper's Pond, but it is our quite place. Our sacred space. Somewhere else for our girl. 

Day 21. Capture Your Grief. Sacred Space.
