Today we should have a two month old baby girl. We should be taking her cute 2 month picture. Marveling over how much she has grown. But we’re not.
I thought I would feel sad today, but miraculously I’m feeling ok. Tomorrow will be 2 months since Callie’s death and I am wondering how I will feel then. Will I feel the sadness I am expecting, or will I just feel ok like today?
Many of you have shared with me how the color yellow reminds you of Callie now. Me too. It’s happy, rejuvenating, and optimistic. It is the color of hope. Now anytime I pass something pretty and yellow, I think of Callie and I stop and take a picture of it. If you see something yellow today, tomorrow, or next year…stop and remember our angel. Take a deep breath of fresh air. Put your hand on your heart and feel it beating with the consistency that we all take for granted, where Callie’s could not. Take a picture to remember that moment! Go ahead! Use your cell phone if you have to…2/3 of my pictures below are from my iPhone! Save them in a yellow folder and put them together into a collage of happiness to look at when you need a pick-me-up. If you feel like sharing, send me your collages and I will post them here on a sunny day to remember our Callie. xoxo
