Know what I mean Jelly Bean?

It’s strange where these things can get you. This morning I was in CVS, browsing the Easter cards. I picked up a cute one with colorful Easter Bunnies and eggs on the front. “Happy Easter” it said. Then I opened it. The message inside was “Know what I mean Jelly Bean?”

I almost bought it. I still might go back for it. But that would be crazy, right?

P.S. Yesterday was 2 months, exactly, from the day Lina died.

    Not crazy at all. Sometimes we get messages in the mostamazing ways. This was one from her. You don’t need the card, but if it would give you comfort than buy it.

    Hi Patrice,

    Checking up on you. I’d read this post before, but not commented, so I think I will.

    I would go back and buy the card. Any material connections you can have with your daughter, take them. The ethereal ones are indescribable, but the earthbound ones you can hold, and look at, and see concretely.

    I would like to get this card for you. Since I can’t, I’ll just send you a loving message.

    Thinking of you and your children, and wishing you peace and spots of joy growing ever larger and more frequent,

About Me

I'm a grieving mom. I have one beautiful daughter, Annika, who's 3 years old now (born 12/28/04). I also had twins, Lina and Cole, on 10/04/07, born at just 26 weeks. We lost Cole after just 23 days due to complications related to his prematurity. Fiesty little Lina overcame so much and just when she was getting ready to come home with us, suddenly had a complication unrelated to her prematurity and passed away on January 11, 2008. This blog is about getting through it. More...
