Although I feel sadness today, I find myself realizing the extent of all the blessings I have received throughout this loss. First and foremost, I find my focus to be more on God now than it ever was before. I will continue to pray that He guides my every step. I look back at all the people that have been so wonderful to us from the moment we found out we lost the boys right up to today. I have made A LOT of friends, some on support group boards and some at my support group at the hospital. I can't tell you what this group of women mean to me. They all understand and know my feelings.
I was blessed to have Wayne home with me today. It was kind of a last minute decision but one that I am really glad he made. It felt right that we be together today. We didn't do anything monumentous...we just took it easy. We did venture out this evening to go to a funny movie though. It was good to "get away" for a while today.
I wasn't sure if anyone would remember the due date today but I was once again touched and blessed by the wonderful people in my life. Many of the girls from the support group remembered, as did my parents, and my brother and his wife. There were also a few people from church that approached us yesterday to let us know that they would be praying for us today. I am so appreciative to all the people that remembered the boys today.
I have to share what my parents did for the boys and for Wayne and I though. The following is a letter I recieved followed by some photos:
