I was woke up this morning by an automated phone call from the State. It was not how I would have chosen to start Christmas Eve. We have cookies to bake for Santa, food to prepare for tomorrow, a few more presents to wrap, and fun and games planned for the evening. I did not plan on starting the day with tears and fighting to not let the depression leave me curled up on the couch all day. It's not that my little girl would be far from my thoughts. In fact she would be in the front of my mind as we did all these activities. She would be missed during every second of the day the way it was. I did not need it thrown in my face that she is gone like it was at 8 this morning. Here is a copy of the email message I received that is essentially what the phone call was, but with a few more details.
