Emi

Posted on: 10.24.10

Legume, Peanut, Pumpkin, Lima Bean… all nicknames for a tiny baby that never had a chance to grow… thinking of Peanut Warner as a nickname is really… weird. I don’t know if it would be a boy or a girl, but I know it was a baby. I’d like to think of “Peanut” as a girl, as Emi… whose name in Japanese means blessing, favor and beautiful. I like to think she is favored by God and in heaven. October 19th will never be the same.  

Baby Emi, I’m so sorry I never got to meet you, but I’m so glad you’re with Jesus.

This picture says it better than I ever could.

…and one mile backward.

Ever feel like that’s how life is going? I feel like Mr. W. and I have taken several awesome steps forward lately, but we hit a semi, and got pushed a mile backward. Nothing has ever been easy in my life, and I’m definitely not complaining… but I didn’t think that my streak of difficult would last so long in my life. Oh I really hope things change on my birthday, for the better. Here’s to the next 27 years of good stuff! (I hope).

More later,
-Mrs. W.
