On friday I just had a horrible experience. It has taken me this long to even be able to write about it. My husband had called me and asked if after work I could meet him at his mother's house because the whole family was there, all six kids, their spouses and kids, and they wanted to do a family portrait. I was cool with it, didn't even think about it. My one sad thougth was that our little bird would not be able to be in the picture. Then when I was about 5 minutes from home IT HIT ME!!!!!!!! I didn't have a baby for the family portrait. I would never have a family portrait taken with Mary Rose.
I called my husband sobbing hysterically that I could not get my picture taken without Mary Rose.
My husband met me at the house and I had a good cry. We then went and met the family for dinner at our favorite restaurant and his mother came up and hugged me and whispered in my ear "You are loved."
It was just the sweetest thing and almost made me cry again.
