Remissionversary

Three years.
It simultaneously feels like another lifetime and yesterday.
If that's even possible.
Whenever I think about that time in our lives,
I usually allow myself a minute or two
for sadness
anger
self pity.
After that I move straight to
gratitude.
It's your "special day", Lila Jane.
Enjoy it.

Lila is pretty special! She deserves two birthday-like days in a year!

A dream.
I know what you mean about it feeling like a lifetime ago. I mean, I don't know EXACTLY how you feel. But when I saw her, she is just so . . . regular. A happy, teasing, pouting, laughing little girl.
