Glimmer Boxes can be sent to grieving mothers of infants for free anywhere in the United States. The items in the boxes are carefully chosen to help a grieving mother heal emotionally and physically. It is our hope that when a mother receives this box, she will be comforted and able to find peace in the midst of her grief.
Items included in the Glimmer Box:
This prayer shawl has been prayed over to offer you extra support. Please wear this on your shoulders when you feel defeated and allow the warmth to give you comfort.
Please light this candle in honor of your baby. At times when you feel alone, let the light from this candle give you peace that your baby is always near.
Please use this journal to write down your feelings and thoughts. Use it as a way to communicate with your baby and share all of the dreams that you had for them.
Please listen to this music and allow the words to speak to you and give you a sense of hope.
Please use these ice and heat packs as a way to ease your aching muscles. These may help you as your milk comes in or help to soothe a headache.
Please use these teas to relax you when sleep feels impossible.
you alone can heal our broken hearts;
you alone can wipe away the tears that well up inside us;
you alone can give us the peace we need;
you alone can strengthen us to carry on.
We ask you to be near those whose time of joy has been turned into sadness.
Assure them that with you nothing is wasted or incomplete, and uphold them with your tender love.
Supported by your strength,
may our love for one another be deepened
by the knowledge of your love for us all.
