Cinnamon Rolls for Hurting Hearts

"Mama, will there be tears in his eyes because God took his baby to heaven?"

"There might be.  Sometimes people cry; sometimes people don't.  Remember when God took our baby to heaven?  I cried a lot, didn't I?"  

"Yeah, and I did too."

"Do you think  ______ and his wife would like some cinnamon rolls?"  

"Yeah, but I don't know if they will help the tears in his eyes."

Truth be told, I don't either.
Four and a half months after our little one went to heaven, and God has thrown about four other families directly into our path as they process miscarriage.
And to be honest, I don't know what to do.  
You would think having gone through it, that there would be some magic answer.
There's not. 
So today, I just get to pray that the cinnamon rolls my tender-hearted boy helped me make will help in some fashion, if only to let this family know that we're there for them.
