I stopped by my neighbor's place the other day.
They were doing a bang-up business at an obviously outrageous garage sale. While perusing the goodies, I happened to mention I was a close neighbor. She couldn't place me. Yes, I live just around the turn. No recognition yet. That's Okay. Right now I'd just as soon not remind her.
"Oh, now I remember! You're Stevie's Mom!" She had heard we lost a child, but she thought it was a girl. I glossed over the error and launched into the happy story of adoption, our most precious little Ricky.
"How nice- now you have two children!"
Now she cried. I cried.
I bought a tiny sled for the babies in my family yet to come visit.
The welcome mat is out.
