My uncle watched us as Emily and I were playing outside while she was being fed and he said, "that's just sad."
He was referring to the fact that Emily was receiving her food through a feeding tube in her tummy.
He watched for another minute and said, "Noelle, I think God must really hate you."
Knowing my uncle and his personality he was probably 90% serious.
I picked Emily up and walked into my office where I sat down and just cried.
I know what he said is far from true but it's been an incredibly long, stressful week and I'm EXHAUSTED.
I'm going to go now and find a way to stop crying because what do you know, I forgot the waterproof mascara.
Do me a favor?
Never say something like that to someone - it doesn't help.
