I guess ALL 21 month-olds do this? This was back when I was pg with Seth. I remember those days like a bad dream. Life is SO much better now.
Anyway, looking through old emails is kick sometimes. I was actually looking for the address of a friend of mine. I just found out that she passed away unexpectedly yesterday. How sad. Life is so short and so precious. Don't take one minute for granted. My friend, a person who I met online but also met in real life in Seattle once was the sweetest, most cheerful, uncomplaining person I have ever met. Although struggling with some major health issues including diabetes, kidney failure and dialysis and amputation she never talked about being in pain or feeling hopeless or depressed. She talked instead about how much she loved her husband, how much fun she had with her dog, how much she liked fish-n-chips. Now her pain is over and she is dancing with Jesus on two healthy legs. It's amazing how a person who I have only met once can change my life.
That was a rambling post, but sometimes life is like that. The pathos and the humorously absurd mix and you can't sort one out from the other. So I post this email about my daughter from a year and a half ago because Bella would have laughed about it. Maybe she is laughing still.
