From the moment I heard Emma's shrill, loud cry as she emerged into the world, I knew that I would never again feel content unless I knew she was OK. When Charlotte arrived one minute later, floppy and quiet for a moment, that feeling doubled.
Though I knew better than to have an affair with him, I'd seen enough movies to know that my break-up with my boyfriend was an ominous sign. My coworkers began questioning our relationship, too. "We're just friends!" I blustered. But on second thought, I suspected we weren't.

From Arron, his death and now from Jim, I have learned so much about living life. Doing things that scare you, saying "yes" as much as possible, being exhausted in a good way.
