"The anniversary" hung over my head a bit, but it turned out to be as good of a day as it could (of course, a call from our agency could have put it over the top, but I'll settle with good!).
I received encouraging support from friends, including some great quotes that I'll share later. (As a side note, I don't EXPECT friends to remember this day, so if you are reading this and didn't say anything, please don't feel even a twinge of guilt!!)
A good friend stopped into my office at about the time we were in the ultrasound room last year. I told her it was hard to think back to what I was doing exactly a year before, but from there is was "up". The amazing support we were blessed with from others kept us going, and still does. We haven't given up the hope that our family will grow. I remember how Jamie and I came together, the cards, thoughtful and loving gifts, calls, texts and prayers. I know prayers help heal, we are proof.
Late morning these showed up in my office, with a note that said, "Remembering ALL of our loved ones. Love and God bless, Jamie":
I picked up our miracle from daycare, had a nice dinner with him, and went to the library for a fun preschool event. No feelings of sadness (even when I look back and think of all the families there with multiple children), just feelings of being blessed that I GET to pick up a child from daycare and bring him to fun kid events.
