The lunch was just amazing. The food smelled delicious and tasted even better. I wish I had taken photos of the food. Not only was it delicious but it was soooo pretty too! Bree put our Angel baby's names, as well as other baby angel names, next to the yummy chocolate chip cookie muffins so that they were there in spirit with us.
She gave me Genesis' name to take along with some of the goodies when I went back home.
|How cute is that? <3|
I cant tell you how yummy the food was. No really. I had never had a tomato sandwich before and Im not big on veggies so I was a little worried I wasnt going to like it. This is now SO my favorite food! Bree you must share the recipe! Then there was a super yummy salad as well, I already mentioned the chocolate chip cookie muffins and there were also chocolate cupcakes! The cupcakes were SOOOO adorable in pink butterfly cupcake holders! Seems like the theme for todays "Rainbow Lunch" was butterflies, LOVE IT!
I felt so comfortable with these ladies like I had known them all along. It was
I have to admit that I was a little apprehensive at first when I was invited. After Genesis died so did my former self. I was no longer the outgoing, happy, friendly person I once was. I am more of a homebody now and dont have much of a social life being a single mama of two. I dont get out much and needless to say I dont have very many REAL friends. And zero friends that have had a loss that I can relate to and get/give support in that way. So I was afraid that I was going to meet a bunch of strangers and have it be really awkward and not know what to say and not enjoy myself. That SO did NOT happen. I am so happy I stepped out of my comfort zone. Like I mentioned above... it was awesome, it was relaxing, it was so enjoyable and I cant wait to do it again! And did I mention the rainbows got along great! No meltdowns, no fighting and no hysterical crying, by either babys or mamas ;), all the kids were very well behaved. It was so cute too because the three littlest rainbows were so close in age. (How cute does that sound? 'littlest rainbows' lol) Here is a pic of the rainbows minus mine. I cropped mine out for privacy reasons but if you'd like to see the unedited photo feel free to check out my facebook albums.
How cute are these little ladies? Really, cropping out my two rainbows does not give the photo justice as to how cute it was to have all the babies together. When it was time to go I felt like I wanted to stay, like I belonged there with "my kind". With women that "get it." Im so happy to have made new friends with these wonderful and inspirational women and so happy our rainbows are friends as well.
On my drive home as I was stuck in traffic, as is accustom in Los Angeles, a dragonfly, of all things, flew right in front of my car and stayed for about 5 seconds just hovering above my hood. How awesome is that?
