Yes, she’s back. She’s arrived 9 months postpartum, closer to 10 months really. And so of course, I’m crying for a million things today. Probably all of her handy work, but still, I just feel so emotional.
First off, I was sad that she was here. Not because I hate her so much, but because I haven’t had her for a year and a half, since I found out I was pregnant. So it’s like the Piggie Smalls era is over. Like my body is ready to move on or something. Is that crazy? Am I crazy? I’m in tears right now…it’s that bad lol :*( I just did the laugh cry.
Secondly, a plane crashed into a mountain down the road from me tonight. 6 passengers are probably dead, and 3 of them were children. So far they’ve found one body, between the ages of 5-11. Oh God, my chest just aches for this child’s mother. From the reports, it sounds like only one parent was in the plane. They flew the plane down to the valley to pick up the children and take them up north for Thanksgiving. I imagine a mother somewhere, busy preparing food for her family tomorrow, and hearing this over the news. May God be with this family. My heart is breaking for them.
Now I’m listening to Sara Evans’ “I Could Not Ask for More”. SO not the song I should be listening to. Just want to say, in honor of Thanksgiving, I am so deeply thankful for all the people in my life. Especially my husband and son, they’re definitely my entire world.
