A real surprise...and a note of thanks

After being almost 6 months away from work (I was out on bed rest as of August due to my faulty placenta), I went back to work. I wont lie: I did not want to. I was sad to leave my family behind. I know anybody in my place would have felt the same. I started enjoying my stay-at-home situation, and my kids loved it as well, but reality must settle in and with a broken heart, I started again as of last week.

It has been a rough transition; however, today I felt like I was home.  I felt the love while my friends from work gave me a surprise baby shower.  I felt special, it felt like family, it felt like home, so THANKS everyone. I had a rough year while I was expecting, and I did not have a baby shower due to my bed rest, so it really warms my heart and appreciate it.  I have been blessed to have great friends who have been there for us at our thoughest times.  Everyone has been so understanding. I want to thank everyone for being so supporting, for not saying the dreaded word "sorry", for not judging me, for having my family in their prayers.  Believe me when I tell you, I would have not done anything different if I knew about Alyssa's diagnosis before time. I am glad she is here. She has opened up my eyes and made me appreciate more the people around me. I thank God today for letting me work with such a great group of people and thank you for caring from the bottom of my heart.
