Today would have been my expected due date if our daughter, Emma, had not been born too soon. I think the anticipation of a certain day is worse than the day itself. Today, I'm feeling very happy because I feel she sent me a sign. I will explain, but let me back up. I think she has sent me a sign before. A few days after getting out of the hospital back in October, I had a dream that I was on a bus trip and she was about 3 or 4 years old. She was sitting next to me, and I was telling someone else, "They said she was dead, but as you can see, she's just fine." To me, that was her communicating to me that she was okay. It gave me great comfort at the time.
This morning, I had to be at work extremely early. I stopped into this convenience store that I hardly ever go to. I was checking out, and the cashier said, "Would you like to donote to the March of Dimes?" Well, sure I would! I made the donation in Emma's name, and they hung a little paper with her name on it on the wall. The cashier said, "Emma is a pretty name." I said, "That was the name of my preemie." Okay, I may be going way out on a limb, but it seems like a pretty big coincidence.
Today, I'm going on a trip. I almost didn't go, but hubs said, "How are you going to choose to remember this day?" Okay, you got me. I'm working an early shift, because I want to bust out of here early. I am going to be heading to Denver to go to a scrapbooking retreat. All the bags are packed and in my car. Ugh! Eight hours to go! Can I make it?
