I love mail and buy more cute or funny or thoughtful postcards than I will realistically send out in the next decade whenever I can find them. However, it’s been a long time that I sent a congratulatory card on the arrival of a little one. It felt too painful when dealing with infertility, even more so after losing A&C. (I did send emails in an effort not to be a total grinch.)
And now we are on the receiving side! So grateful, with the occasional side of feeling bad for not making others that same pleasure. Maybe even for missing chances to buy adorable cards as the one above.
And it’s not just cards – we have received baby clothes, the quilt from two posts ago and now a stylish nursing scarf!
It is an odd contrast to last year, where I probably would have needed the care and support much more, but very welcome nonetheless.
