August 4th, 2012

We went to the river today with friends.  I didn't think about it until we showed up but the last time we were there I was pregnant.  And so was my friend's sister.  She didn't know about Abby's story yet.

As we drove up and parked it hit me... She is still pregnant, but I'm not.  But I also don't have a baby.

I felt very emotional at the realization.  As she walked up to me the emotions grew.  I'm so thankful for her strength and love.  That I could shed tears in front of her, in her arms.  That she would also believe me that I am so excited for her, for her daughter.  I can't wait to meet her... 3 more weeks (or less??)!

It was a healing day.  And it was refreshing to feel overwhelmed by emotion.  That probably doesn't make sense, but it does to me.  Sometimes it helps me to feel closer to Abby.

    Those are the moments that make me want to wrap you up in a safe cocoon. Those encounters when you have to share your story when you aren't prepared. I have no doubt that you handled it far better than I ever would. I love your positive outlook on it and I hope it helps you to both heal and grow.
    Big hugs.
