This was a really hard week for us. In June our twins, Ezra and Caroline, passed away before being born. We were nearly 5 months along. I have never experienced such tragedy. It hurts every day. This week was their due date. I expected it to hurt. And it did.
Yet there are still things to celebrate this week...
1. My partner and I are still together and stronger than ever, even though we have been through so much heartache
2. Lucy loves to snuggle. She keeps us strong and makes us laugh
4. Ridiculous reader's theater performances. On Thursday I was really struggling. My heart was hurting. I just wanted to curl up in bed and cry. But I had agreed to perform a reader's theater of The True Story of the Three Little Pigs for the families of K-3rd graders. I got to wear a police officer's hat. Without meaning to, I found myself having a ridiculously good time. I needed that.
