a page turns

My sister had her baby girl today. Mother and child are both fine according to my mom. I heard the baby cry over the phone.

I am an aunt for the first time. My mom is a grandmother for the first time. J and I are nowhere closer to being moms.

More later. For now, I need to be very still and figure out how to feel.

    Hmmm..I give you a lot of credit for being still to figure out your emotions. What a emotional ride.

    how very confusing and what a conflicting set of emotions
    my only advice–you have permission to feel whatever it is you are feeling and all your feelings are valid–the beautiful and the ugly


  8. thud. I imagine that is how your heart went…sigh.
    thinking of you both.

  9. Congratulations on being an aunt. I bet it’s hard to sort out your emotions on this one – I know it would be for me. But you are closer to being moms – these are all the necessary steps.
