The emails bombarded me today while I sat there putting Brinley's angelversary dates on my calendar. First I received an email stating that someone was going to have a baby shower for my co-worker. I got upset from this because it was only sent out to certain people and they obviously didn't think that sending me the email might not be a good idea. The second email was a mass email to everyone at work about the birth of her baby girl. I didn't even read this one when I saw what it was or at least what I thought it was (the baby shower invite again). I just sat there in my office crying.
What makes me feel better?
1. This haiku by my niece Harley Rose posted to FB but I talked to her directly afterwards. She is so silly. I love her so much!
A petal in the wind
Fluttering softly with ease
To land on a pond
2. The changes I've made to my blog layout. I created the header and changed the default fonts on the page. I also changed the background.
Day 4 - Your favorite book. Has it changed since your loss?
I love to read so this is a hard one. I used to say that "Where the Red Fern Grows" was one of my favorites. It's been so long since I read that book now that I can't really remember it that well. Since my loss I have been reading "Empty Cradle, Broken Heart". I have really enjoyed this book. It may be hard to read at times but it makes me feel better.
I also have a book called "An Exact Replica of a Figment of My Imagination: A Memoir" which I haven't started reading yet but a lot of BLMs have said that has been their favorite book so I am looking forward to starting that one.
