No Less Important or Real

Her birthday is next month.

This morning, I looked through the most precious keepsakes I'll ever have - her foot and handprints, snippet of hair, foot impression, ultrasound photos, hospital bracelets, the hat she wore right after she was born, and the outfit she wore at the hospital, one of the only 2 she'd ever wear (the other is her "going Home to Jesus" outfit).

I just needed the reminder that I really am a mommy, even though my daughter who would almost be SIX! isn't here. As my friend Stacy wrote to me, my mothering Lily might look different than other people, but it is no less important or real.
