Good night, sweet prince: And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest...
-William Shakespeare

It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.

Nine- Eleven

I've said those numbers so many times in my life. You see, my birthday is nine- eleven, nineteen-seventy-four. They roll off my tongue. Yes, today supposedly, I am another year older. Although if you ask me in person, especially today I will tell you that I am twenty-seven. Every year on this day I tell people I am twenty-seven. In 2001 I decided I no longer had to celebrate a birthday. I mean really, who wants a birthday with such a crappy conotation behind it? Not me! Then again, who the hell can forget my birthday? They may not no how old I really am, but they know when to wish me happy birthday! So, happy birthday to me!

I've had a lot of ups and downs since I last posted. We're on the ttc train again. I think I'm excited. Honestly, I don't know where my feelings are these days.

I am sorry, I haven't checked in on any of you, I hope you are all doing well. I just found it easier to stay away, it made it easier for me to function IRL.

Truly, nothing new here...nine months, William's nine month anniversary is two days away. I have mixed emotions about this also. It'll be alright though. I mean, really, I've survived this long and no one thought I would, including myself!

You all take care and thanks to all of you for checking in on me for the last month plus! I truly appreciate it!

Happy 27th birthday, and I want you to know that I miss you.

((hugs)) Amy! You still deserve a happy birthday, no matter what... we all know on any given day, there are joyful things that happen, and downright sucky things that happen. And 27 years ago, I mean, er, 34 years ago, something GREAT happened on nine-eleven, and that was YOUR birth.
Wishing you the best on ttc, and holding you and William in my thoughts the next days. xo

Amy said...

Thank you, Aunt B and Janis, it means a lot to me to know you are still here for me!

Don't I wish that I were truly 27 again?! The things I might possibly change in my, well, I guess I wouldn't change anything!

You two ROCK! Thanks again!

Happy Birthday!! Today is my Goddaughter's birthday as well, so even though there is sadness today, it's mixed with happiness as well!

Glad to hear, that even with mixed emotions, you're back on the TTC train. I will be praying for you...

Happy Birthday sweetie. I know it's hard.

I've missed you but understand your need to be away.

Still praying for you and hoping you'll come back to call me, P, once again.

9 months is a long time to make it...and you have. It's something to definitely be amazed by.
