My Happy Place

Zil made a comment that I was "such a good example."

Uh oh.

I'm so not.

IRL (that's In Real Life) I would never be called a 'good example' as I sit here in my pjs, unshowered in my untidy house, blogging when I should be doing my work-from-home job.

That's why I like blogging so much, I think.

I can come here create a happy place for myself. I can be what I want to be. 30 lbs thinner, fashionably funky dressed, witty and clever, always saying the right thing.

I like this place because it is one of the only places I am known solely as "Gabriel's mom". I think of it like we are all a bunch moms sitting around at a playgroup, chatting amongst ourselves while our children play together. They just happen to be just out of sight. But if we listen hard we can hear their happy little voices.

I think mine just hit yours. Sorry about that! I'll remind him to play nice.


Speaking of Zil, why not pop over to her blog Three Little Birds and see the gorgeous Certificate of Life she got from the Shrine of the Holy Innocents for her Baby Boy G.

An untidy house does not mean you aren't a good example.

I think you have made a very peaceful place here. Thank you

OMG Emily, you just described me... blogging in my pj's in my messy house! The only difference is that I don't have a stay at home job. I'm not working right now. I should start looking for a new job but every time I think about it, I get depressed. I've allowed myself to wait until I hear more about insurance before I make a decision about jobs. The only decision I made is that I'm not going back to the one I had before my husband ended up in the hospital. That job was not very good, and it was physically exhausting, I don't think I could do that now because I have all the other responsibilities at home that I didn't have before, or that I shared with my husband.

You made me laugh with that post. I have a good friend whose son was stillborn the same day Aaron died. We have always said that our baby boys are best friends in heaven :-) I often have dreams of just watching Aaron play and it's probably about the most peaceful thing I can dream about.
