I am sad because today is the 1 year angelversary of the twins. One year ago today I was told to stop all medication and prepare for my miscarriage that didn’t happen on its own, it took several weeks and an emergency D&C to finally happen. I am sad because as I feel the little kicks of my baby they are gentle reminders of my three angels who couldn’t be here with us. I am also sad because, even though I know I have every right to be sad, I know that there are so many others who need to be sad too and maybe my sadness should be not so prevalent.
I learned today that the wife of a friend of ours passed away suddenly last night. I don’t know the details, I don’t know if she was sick, frankly the details mean nothing right now because the only thing that matters is her loved ones. I can’t even imagine what her husband and young son are going through and it brings me to tears. She was a lovely woman, daughter, wife, and mother.
Rest in peace, Julia, you were a wonderful mother and I am deeply saddened for your family as they mourn your passing.
