Prompt #19 from #reverb10 is healing. What healed you this year? Was is sudden, or a drip-by-drip evolution? How would you like to be healed in 2011?
I think this is the EASIEST one so far! Rowynn has healed my heart in a way I didn't think would happen. It is wonderful to have him to direct so much of my love toward.
After Abigayl passed, I just felt empty and that I had so much love to give but no physical child to hold and love. Now I am able to pick him up and squeeze him whenever I desire. Poor boy will probably have chapped cheeks from all the kisses he gets!
Obviously, the healing was pretty immediate. I didn't have to take time to get "used" to him, I just loved him with everything I had from the moment I knew he was in my belly.
For 2011, I would love for Rowynn's sibling to be a girl. I know that either way I will be absolutely in love with this child but my heart aches every time I walk by a rack full of girl clothes. There are often times I want to buy items "just in case". My prayer and hope for 2011 is 1) a healthy baby and 2) a little girl!
