Due Date

Today would have been my due date. Although the reminder of this hasn't reduced me to the crying, shriveled mess I long supposed I'd be, it still stings. Luckily, I will be joining many of my fellow IF sisters for dinner tonight and there we'll keep a candle burning for what could have been.

Thinking of you today Shelby. On my baby's due date, DH and I planted a flowering plant out in our yard. It brought me a lot of peace. Now I look at the flowers and it's a happy tribute to my angels.

Have fun at dinner tonight.

Hi Shelby,

Checking back in because I just saw your comment on my blog - thanks! Unfortunately I have dinner plans with a friend tonight, but I will definitely be coming to one of the future drop-in groups. I'll check the website for updates.

I hope you have a nice time tonight. I'll be keeping you in my thoughts today!

Sorry for the sad reminder. It always seems to hit right when it seems like the worst might be over - then, bam!

It's nice to know that you have your real-time IF gals with you tonight - count me there in spirit!

Sending tons of hugs your way!

Hey Shelby, I hope your night was 'fun' (as much as it can be) and that this next cycle is the big winner. Good luck!

Just Me. said...

Hey there, just wanted you to know that I'm thinking of you.

(((hugs)))

banditgirl said...

Hey Lost In Space, thanks! I adore you too :). Shelby, I hope the soju drink and Japanese food and we did the trick. I am especially happy that we could be with you yesterday after your very cute doggie passed away. Every time I look at your picture with her, I tear up. But as I said, when something ends, something else begins, and I feel very, very strongly that something else will very soon begin for you...
