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?

There's a scrapbooking retreat here in Denver? I didn't know that! I wanna go, and since I live in the Denver area it'd be easier for me.

Where do you live Celia?

And floaty kisses to Emma today!

The anticipation of Eli's EDD was worse than the day itself for me too. I hope you have a wonderful time at the scrapbooking retreat...I think it's exactly what Emma would want for you.

I think the anticipation of EDD's can be worse than the actual day itself ((hugs)) I'm glad Emma is all around you today
