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:
Such a beautiful way to end my day.
