Friday: No words.
Moxie had the cleaning challenge of her life last night, emotionally speaking. A dear friend who delivered at home, tended by midwives who are dear friends, lost her baby and I had the honour of assisting my friend in restoring their home to a slightly more comforting state, a picture so vivid in my mind as to be burned indelibly.
My heart will never be the same, and there is some serious community-wide grieving going on today, as well as action to support the family and the midwives.
Your assignment today is:
Don't do a goddamn thing. Pile on the couch with your kids and watch movies and hug them and never stop.
