Today I bought my last cans of formula. I've imagined this event for years. I thought I'd be happy. After all, formula is very expensive and I have formula fed four of our five babies from week one. We have spent a lot of money on formula. I don't even want to imagine the total cost.
But, it was with bittersweet feelings, I pulled the formula off of the shelf at Costco this morning. And as I often do, I got a little teary eyed...
Another stage is soon ending.
I love flower bouquets at Costco. I always gaze at them. I don't often buy flowers for myself, unless Luke is with me, then I sometimes do. Luke always wants "to get some flowers for you mom." Which interpreted means, he picks them out and I pay for them.
As I walked by the flower display today at Costco, still processing my 'no more formula' feelings, I had a fabulous idea. Each time a stage ends that I am a little teary eyed about, I will buy myself flowers! But, so as not to be selfish and wallow in my own self-pity, I will find somebody to share them with that needs to be cheered up far more than me.
Formula or no formula, I am very blessed.
