Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

Posted Jan 11 2009 12:00am
Yesterday is gone, it's all remember-when
Yesterday is past, it never comes again
Yesterday was bright, or yesterday was grey
But all I know is how I feel today

Yesterday, today, and tomorrow
Whether they bring pleasure or sorrow
Time is something no one can borrow;
Yesterday, today and tomorrow

Tomorrow never comes, it's only on the way
For yesterday's tomorrow has become today
We miss what's very close by looking out so far
We all can learn, today is where we are
~Unknown, Yesterday Today and Tomorrow~

Yesterday, I received this lovely memento from the Shrine of the Holy Innocents.

I read about the Shrine on Stepping Stones and followed a link to the website where I filled out an online form. Here is what I said about the little boy we never met:

He will be loved forever and we cherish the time that he was part of our lives.
He's part of our family, part of our history and in our hearts always.

We have so precious little to remember him by. This certificate means so much. It shows that someone else aside from us recognizes that he was our son, our child.

Tomorrow, we are going to meet with the high risk OB to discuss another pregnancy. I’m nervous. If he says “no”, then we need to move on. If he says “yes”, then we go down a different path – no less complex.

Today, I was able to stay in the moment. I enjoyed some crafts with the kids, finished up “thank you” notes from the holidays, and even made pizza. I am surprised at how I’ve been able to keep it together on the outside lately – though my head is still a mess. I guess the fact of the matter is that I’m here today and I need to start living that way.
