Now & Then...


Nine years ago Kevin and I bundled up our new baby girl and walked home from the hospital.  We only lived a block away...


June 9, 2001

but I was still a little weak and didn't feel I could make it.  My mother-in-law Gina drove up and I got in. 

She was there to pick me up.

I feel very much the same way today as I did back then...

as I was at the hospital last night...

although it was a different one, in a different town, and we now live too far from it to walk home.

And instead of a baby I was bringing home, it was my husband, after surgery to his crushed wrist.

But it was almost 4 in the morning when I got him home...

feeling exhausted and as sleep deprived as a new mother...

and before we could even get out of the car...

his mom was there opening the door to our home...

ready to look after her baby...

and to pick me up.
