Exactly two weeks from today, I will be up and mobile, and my MOM will be here too! I am so deeply looking forward to that day. Aaron and I have spent lots of time discussing where to go to lunch, and how close to the hospital we should stay just in case. I love having to think about things like this. It’s a nice thing to be able to trade in worries about Evi’s healthy and safety for worries about who has the best hospital area lunch!
I also wanted to drop by my sadly neglected blog to say thanks to Aunt Becky for today’s post. Not only does she share a beautiful birthday letter to her son, but she also remembers all of the little lost angels she’s had the chance to hear about. So many people are missing a son or a daughter, and that loss never quite leaves you, so anytime someone outside of your personal circle steps in to remember your loss, it is so touching. I feel so blessed to have people in my life who remember our sweet little man the way we do.
Just this morning my mom and I were talking about how much we think of Aodin, how we still talk to him and carry him in our hearts. He is always there, always ours. We are sad to have lost him, but lucky to have known him.
Today I am thinking of all of you, who I know have had losses in one way or another that have touched you. I know some of you have lost children, some parents, some friends… and every one of you is stronger for it. I hope we can all take some time today and smile at the memory of the loved ones who have left us, knowing that they are still carried close to our hearts.
