Two years ago, this day broke my heart.
Today, it was pieced back together.
I cried a lot today. I woke up with a selfish heaviness in my heart, a few tears for the baby I lost two years ago. & within an hour, I hunched over my desk in desperate prayer for my best friend & her babies. I cried with fear. This friend, who held me & brought me slippers & cupcakes two years ago. Her babies, that she fought so hard for. Hours later, I closed my eyes in a silent thanksgiving to God as a text came through that Jenny was safe & her triplets were here.
Tonight, I wrapped my little boy in my arms. Thankful for the journey that brought us together. Thankful for the peace we feel. Praying that soon, Jenny would do the same to her boy & girls.
November 22nd held such a gloom & hurt. But now, we have a reason for joy.
