Pull, yank, tear...

I know I said I wasn’t coming back for a week but I had to write tonight.

Facebook... my friend, my foe.

I caught a glimpse of a friend of a few of my friends profile pic tonight and noticed that she was very pregnant. We have met a few times and have a few very good friends in common so it took me by surprise that I hadn’t heard that she was expecting.

So what did I do? I went to her wall to take a look at her profile picture... all fabulous and cute with her baby belly.

Then I noticed all of the congratulatory messages on her wall, her baby has arrived...

What pulled at my heartstrings?
She had a baby girl.

What yanked at my heartstrings?
She now has the family I was supposed to have... 2 little boys and a baby girl.

What tore my heartstrings?
She named her Claire.

I can’t sleep.
I feel sick.
I am incredibly sad.
I am jealous beyond words.

It was extremely difficult to take in all at once. It felt like I was kicked in the gut, blindsided, totally caught off guard.

That’s what I get for being so Facebook curious.

And I think it goes without saying... however I feel the need to... that of course I am ecstatic for her and her family! I wish them nothing but the best and send them all a big con“girl”ulations on the arrival of their little princess, Claire. xo
