The Rest of Today

Horrible! Absolutely horrible! I have shoeboxes larger than Samuel's tiny casket. I hate open casket thingys, but in this instance I had to look because he was so tiny you almost couldn't see him in there. That and T3 looked over so lovingly at him then up at me, "isn't he precious?" I burst into tears immediatly. Of course I also started crying as we drove into the parking lot of the funeral home. I'm an emotional wreck on my best days, much less days like this.

The graveside was horrible. I can't imagine how the parents did it. I think I'd be jumping in after my child. They have such amazing strength and are such an inspiration. God has given them such comfort and peace and His presence was felt as the preacher read a letter to the parents from Samuel's prespective.

And of course, leave it to me to class up anything. When I walked up to T3 I gave her a hug. She was sitting in a chair since she can barely move from the c-section. As I put my hands on her I realized I was grabbing her boob! Awesome! I just felt up the mama. Oh, but wait. I was also bent over making sure everyone in the chapel got to see my bum! I know, I'm the epitome of grace. It's ok, T3 got a nice laugh out of it so I'd call the full moon and feeling up a success.

Mrs. M--taking one for the team, one boob grabbing and bum showing at a time.

I'm so sorry. I can't imagine how awful that is. This family is in my prayers.

Only a true friend would do a full moon and a feel up L:) You did what you could to ease their pain, only if only for a few seconds.

That is so sad! I'm so sorry for you and your friends. I'm glad that they have you and Mr. M!

That's so funny you grabbed her boob and showed everyone your butt! I am so sorry that this happened to your close friends. I can't even imagine how horrible this is, and how deeply saddened and crushed you all are. My thoughts are with you. Life just doesn't make sense sometimes, and hurts so much.

I cannot even imagine what they are going through. That is just heartbreaking. :(
