For some reason today’s cry scale is about an 8. Maybe it is the weather change. (We have snow in our mountains already), maybe it is because I am just hormonal, but more likely it is because my brother and his wife just had a brand new baby yesterday. Henry John. (Henry being my mom’s father’s name, and John being my Dad’s name and his father’s name.) So he is named after his 2 great grandfathers and grandfather. Confused?
I don’t know if my dad knew that my brother and his wife were expecting before he died. I imagine they found out in the few weeks before or after his funeral. I was looking at the pictures of little Henry and thinking how wonderful it would be to hold a little spirit that has so recently been with my dad. I imagine my dad sending him off to my brother.
After I looked at the pictures I went and cried in the bathroom at work for a few minutes. So now I have a cry headache and I’m tired. It’s only noon. What a way to start off a Friday.
Funny, our hospice nurse for dad just had a baby girl last week too.
My sister was saying this morning she wanted a Keep Calm and Fish On poster since she had been seeing so many all over the place with different sayings on them. So I made her this one today.
So I am trying to take the advice of keeping calm, but I don’t like to fish so I’ll skip that part.
