Due date

July 14th, 2008 was my due date.  Kiddo was showing no signs of budging, so John and I did exactly everything we shouldn’t have done… we went to Annapolis… probably a good hour maybe more away from the hospital.  I did a fair amount of walking.  We ate spicy food at Chipotle.  Mmm… it was delicious… at the time we didn’t have one in our area.  Now we have one close to my work, but I can’t bring myself to go there… sigh.  We went to the firehouse and it was so great to see everybody and everybody couldn’t wait for the baby!  We kidded about the firefighters getting to deliver him and get their stork!

Kiddo had no intentions of coming yet, he’s stubborn like that, sometimes.  But John and I had a perfectly wonderful excursion… the two of us… about to become three… a “real” family… young… in love… and having no idea of what would happen to our lives in a few months… in a year… I can’t tell you how many times a day, I think how much John would love to see his son and how he would have laughed and smiled… and busted at the seams with pride and love…

About Mary K. Smith

I was widowed in July 2009, when I lost my beloved husband, John, to melanoma. Cancer SUCKS. We have a young son who was just a year old when his father died. I live on a small farm in Maryland which is home to horses, cats, and a dog. I started this blog as a way for me to heal, a way to remember my husband, and eventually I'd like to share it with our son so he can see the love that his father had for him, the love that we had for each other, what a great person his father was, and how hard his father fought to live.
