Emotions Run High

Today was an insanely emotional day.

I woke up tired from not enough sleep last night.

I picked myself up, made me a caffeinated latte and headed out the door.

The day was good.

Then I heard a story.  A story that sent me straight back to the NICU when my tiny little babies were fighting for their lives.  Moments I will never forget.  Moments still very vivid in my memory.  Moments that are beautiful and painful all in the same heartbeat.

Tears welled up.  I was at work so I tried not to cry.  Tears spilled over anyway.

I made the drive home where I was delighted to see my boys.  I didn’t see them much yesterday and couldn’t wait to get my hugs and kisses.

I walked in the door to hello mommies and the giant hugs I was waiting for.

Then Eli handed me this:

And the tears welled up again.

Such a beautiful way to end my day.
