Mother's Day would have been much harder for me had it not been for a few kind and thoughtful words. Every text and email that I received today softened the pain of spending the day without Julian in my arms. I am so grateful to have friends who somehow know what to say in impossible situations. I am thankful for a husband who found a card for me that actually made me laugh a little. And, I am thankful for my dear, sweet, beautiful, amazing mommy.
