Ok, so I've been really sad lately. Thinking about Annie and my Kelsey. Trying to help my friend with the loss of her son. And I miss my mamma. I feel overwhelmed with emotions. Haven't been this bad in a long time.
So I go home at lunch time, talk to my hubby and I grab Kelsey's blanket and sniff and cuddle with it. Then I say I have to go back to work, but I'm bringing the blanket, (Yes, I'm 52 years old and I want my blanket because it was Kelsey and it smells like her)
I'm sitting in my office and I hear this little old lady's voice at my door. She comes in and says, "I was reading this" and points to the evening news clipping from when Kelsey's Law was passed. I said, "Yep, Kelsey is my daughter."
Now I don't know this lady, but with tears in her eyes, she says "Can I give you a hug." And I said of course. So as I'm holding back tears, because I REALLY needed a hug and she reminded me of my mamma, I hug her. And she wouldn't let go. She just hugged me like she was my mamma.
Now she doesn't know how much that meant to me and how bad I needed it. I told her to come back and visit me the next time she is in the building. She said she didn't come her much, and I said, well just when you are her.
It AMAZES me how God puts people in your life when you need them. She was an Angel to me. And who knows, maybe she really was one sent by God to comfort me....
