Today I counted down the minutes until I could leave work, drive to Arrine’s daycare and get that hug that I desperately needed. And she delivered.

I remember amm explaining that she knew she was ready for another baby because her arms ached to hold one. That’s how I felt today when I needed a hug from Arrine. My arms ached for it. And her fabulous hug and sweet smile made me forget the loss for a moment. And I smiled.

She doesn’t understand why Mommy was sad today, but she knew her hug made me feel better. And that’s all that matters.
