This morning, E came up to me and gave me a hug.
"you're my favorite mom"
then she paused
still hugging me and said
"and my other mom. I have two favorites."
I kept hugging her and told her how sad I was that her mom wasn't here but that I knew how much her mom loved her
more than anything else
And then I went and took a shower and she watched Strawberry Shortcake

right in the middle of our life

Will you go visit Mamalode?
and read my article about meeting E's family?
you could help us remember
