We had a wonderful lunch date....just two angel Moms hanging out. I must say that it was good for my soul to be around someone who is like me, yet different. I felt understood and accepted. I loved that we were able to talk about our babies and everything else and it just seemed normal. I am looking forward to getting the rest of our families together, doggies included, sometime soon.
As a lot of you know from a previous post I am going to be doing a little public speaking tomorrow at an appreciation luncheon. It is in honor of the volunteers who put together the memory boxes for my hospital. I have been a procrastinator my whole academic life. My excuse has always been that I perform better under pressure and I guess this is no different since I just finished up my speech tonight. Since it's about Harper, it is not surprising that it just flowed out of me. Now I need to rehearse even though I have a feeling that as soon as I stand up there I will just be ad-libbing quite a bit. Here's to kleenex and water proof mascara.
I am not really nervous...yet. I am actually excited to be able to talk about Harper with a room full of women who will most likely 'get it'. Chances are they have been in my shoes at some point in their life. So, please send prayers, good karma, and happy thoughts my way tomorrow as I hope to do good by Harper and honor my daughters sweet name.
