WeWriWa -August 2, 2015 - Missi Wanderin' in the Woods

Welcome back! Last week, we got a peek into soldier Charlie's softer side when he insisted they go back to the Italian pound and adopt the twin brother of the little dog we'd just given a home. 

Thoughts of our puppies fizzled as I glanced from my ring to his haggard face and rested my hands on my belly again. Charlie seemed to read my thoughts. “I am so, so sorry Sara, I love all of you, Lil’ Grub, too.”

Emotion threatened to choke me as I remembered the night we almost lost our baby. I was ten weeks along and we’d just made love. I went to the restroom to get ready for bed and discovered I was bleeding. Big black clots trailed by bright red blood covered the bottom of the tiny European toilet. I called for Charlie through a veil of tears.

  1. Poignant moment indeed. Really an intense snippet!

  2. Yes. I feel it is so important to tell this story because sometimes it is easy to forget there is someone you love and who loves you behind all the hurt and emotions.

  3. Quiet, strong dramatic scene. Well done.

  4. Intense, yet poignant at the same time. Well done.

  5. Very real description, Sara. Very real...


Leave me or anyone in the family a comment, we would love to hear from YOU!
