hey, I remember this life...

Today I worked on lots of projects, including my zombie in a jar and a project for one of the Silver Bella swaps I signed up for. I made a big ol' mess in the family room floor, complete with pins and needles, and I'm just leaving it all there until tomorrow.

We went out for lunch in the 2-seater convertible, which I haven't sat in since January.

Yes, I remember this life.

So, today was a bit better. It was comforting to have Rich around. More than a few times during the day, we talked about sweet Baby. Rich said "I just wish I could hold him". Me too.

p.s. I think a 50 lb. box of toys arrived today at his new home...it makes me smile to think of him rediscovering them all.

It must be wonderful to have been such a blessing to baby's family. I have been reading your updates, and I have to tell you not without a kleenex in hand. How wonderful to have such a supportive husband. Karen

Sometimes it is good to remember that other 2 person life. Makes you appreciate both "lives" that much more...

Can I suggest that tomorrow you go out, leave the house and explore your world of inspiration on your own....go anywhere. Just be away from all those heartstrings for a while. Walk back in the door with a giant cupcake or a new dress or a bag full of craftiness. Turn the music up really loud and ..... whatever you want.
Thinking of you, sweet Amy. (p.s. posting the how-to for your sunshine clock tomorrow. Time to brighten up!) xoC

I can't imagine the hurt but you are the strongest of parents, you and RICH. The blessings and security you gave that little creature bug is beyond measure. To give him life as you did, that is a true gift.

Enjoy remembering your 'old' life :-) Enjoy your time with Rich. Enjoy being YOU.

Hi Amy,

Sometimes it is very hard to pick up the pieces of our life. I think you and Rich deserve a huge (((hug))).

My heart weeps for you... I just read what you wrote below to my husband, and I cried. I am so glad that you were able to meet and spend time with this sweet little baby. There is no doubt, that the extra special love you provided, will warm his sweet heart for many years to come. And vice versa.

With a heavy heart, and every good wish,

This is good news. When the world gets a little crazy, I can get lost in my crafts and making a mess, too.

Each day can be so bittersweet. Baby and you were so blessed to have been in eachothers lives. God be with you all during this time of adjustment and know you have filled that little guy with so much love and knowledge this past year and forever he will hold that in his heart. God Bless You!

It's been so lovely to read about your time with sweet Baby this past year. Your love for him is so clear in your writing and it's so pure and beautiful. I admire your strength as you send Baby to continue on his journey. You and Rich are such good, good people and I wish you both so many more blessings.

Hugs,
Yin
