Thank you all SO MUCH for the kind and encouraging words. We're hanging in there. Our trip to California was amazing and I am so, so grateful for the time we got to spend with family and friends. Then this morning we were back at our church in downtown Denver and it felt good. I think it's feeling like home now. This week we might get to celebrate Ethiopian Christmas with sweet friends. Both of my moms groups are starting back up soon. Lots going on, and of course we're re-orienting ourselves to life now without the anticipation of a new baby coming this summer. I can have caffeine and alcohol again and I'm not peeing all the time and I guess I just really miss being pregnant. It's hard. BUT, life is still full. Grief is strange, especially when the loss is kind of intangible. It comes and goes, and as time passes it will get a little easier. It's kinda like the children's story We're Going On a Bear Hunt. We can't go over it, we can't go under it, we've got to go through it.
Anyway, I'm still laughing over something that happened earlier and I just had to share.
Today after church we stopped at Whole Foods for some groceries. As I was paying, the man bagging my food said, and I quote:
One of your cutie's is squashed.
WHAT?! For the life of me I could NOT figure out WHAT he was talking about (and started wondering if I should be offended! Ha!) THEN it occurred to me he was talking about my clementine orange thingies I was buying, otherwise known as cuties. Whew. He really had me wondering for a minute!
Hope you have a great rest of the weekend!
