She's here

I'm an aunt again. My brother's daughter, Talia, was born this afternoon. Everyone is healthy and safe.

My brother, of course, handled the announcement as clumsily as possible, send my father a text message to the waiting room. Thankfully I had already planned out how I wanted to hear the news, from my sister.

I haven't the faintest glimmer of joy for them . Not yet, anyway. Still hoping for that.

Now, I have to go finish writing my comps.

Joshua Spencer, Jacob Rhys, Callum, Caleb, Maddy, Serenity, Noah Doodle, Talia Doodle, Jessica, Peyton, Jacob, Liam, William, Henry, Charlotte, Paige, Hannah, Gabriel, Silas, William Henry, Natan, Thomas, A, Finn, Devin, Angel Boy, Ames, and so many more whom I have gotten to know through their wonderful, loving parents.

May their light go on...

Kate from sweet|salty shared this at her local Walk to Remember. I found it so moving. It says so much.

So much.

Another mother joined the club this past week, losing her sweet twin boys.

The heartbreak goes on.

And so does life.

On and on.

Rusted Wings and Bluebirds

(Yes, I've been listening to the new Sara Ba.reil.les album.)

Thinking it may be time to fly -- somewhere else, or nowhere in particular.

I'll let you know.


(Thanks for sticking with me.)
