And as I sat here composing my thoughts for the first time that I have had to even sit down in front of my laptop since who knows when, I saw the clock read 4:44.
I immediately closed my eyes and started to think, "I hope that something great happens today." And then I stopped myself and started to laugh. Old habits die hard. In the past, any time I saw a digital clock with all of the same numbers, I used to close my eyes and make a wish. The same wish every time. It might be time for me to stop making that wish for all of my dreams have already come true.
3 years ago this month, Gary and I said, "I do." I choked back the tears as I saw the love that this man had for me and it made me dizzy. It still does. He still does.
2 years ago this month, Allie was due. She never made it to May. But we have made it to and through that month 2 times now with nothing but love and gratitude for the short period of time that we had with her.
Every day of this month, I have woken to the sounds of cooing or crying or laughing or gurgling and I almost always think (while wiping the sleep out of my eyes) that we have it all. And I know that I am right.
What else is there to wish for? Maybe it's time I stop hogging all the wishes and leave room for some other people.
