Overall, today has been a good day. I had a good drive with Bailey to GPS this morning. She shared 2 of her dreams she remembered...the first was a little scarey and the second very funny. I dropped her off and went directly to T.C. Thompson Children’s Hospital, because a very good friend of mine’s son was having surgery today. As I entered the Hospital, I started blocking memories...I was so glad she was able to get me back in the room while they waited, and it was a wait...we laughed and told stories and her husband is great and sweet boy is very active and so precious. I had an appointment, but before I left, I got to visit with one of Christian’s nurses that now works in the Outpatient surgery area. I was late for my appointment. So I exited the hospital quickly...I got in my car and as I started leaving the parking deck, I was thinking about how much Christian loved the child upstairs waiting for surgery and how much he loved her and how close she was to my friend...needless, to say, the tears started. I got them under control thinking about that I am so thankful for those bonds and relationships that will last forever despite the fact that Christian is not physically here on earth. The rest of my day was spent working on house stuff and it was very productive. Today, I am thankful for the blessing of my special friend, Angie Johnson! A friend, that organized hospital rooms for Christian, because she understood that Christian would not feel comfortable until things were a certain way, a friend that had special bags monogramed just for the hospital for all the things we needed to pack, and the best... her amazing laundry skills. She was not just my friend, but she loved Christian and the rest of my family with her whole heart. Thank you Angie for your friendship and loving my family and being a part of our lives! I am thankful for so many memories.............Much love to you and your family!
Tonight, I am also thankful for Holly Shull! Thank you Holly for allowing me to cry and understand where my tears are coming from. Thank you for our long talk tonight and for being my friend. - Robyn
