Today...

One of my best friends is pregnant. I've told her the entire time that I just couldn't come to the hospital with her. She's laboring in the same hospital where Zoe was born. I told her I'd be happy to visit them when they were home.
Yesterday she called. She was scared. She was being induced today.
Do you know what I'm doing now? I'm dressed, keys in hand, on the way to the hospital before they break her water. She doesn't get along with her mother so her and her boyfriend are there and he's clueless.
I'm on the way to help my friend labor. I will pass the gift shop, where those sweet ladies made Zoe flower arrangement to top her casket. I hope she's not in the same room I was in ... This is it..I'm pushing publish and walking out of the door.
Pray for my friend and pray for me too.
Love you guys...

I hope Zoe-Beth is beside you today, bringing her mama a bit of comfort. You're beautifully selfless Lindsay, I don't know if I could do it. I'm praying your day goes smoothly and that the memories are quiet so that you can concentrate on your friend. Hugging you my sweet friend...
