The Day I Realized I Couldn’t See My Child’s Face In My Mind

The other night I was in bed and thought to myself, gosh my baby was so cute today… closed my eyes and tried to see her in my mind but I couldn’t. It was empty. My anxiety tends to get the best of me, and I was tired, so I figured I’d go to sleep and maybe once I was rested I would try again. When I woke up, I tried again to remember what she looked like, and… blank. What was happening? Why couldn’t I see her face when I closed my eyes? I could only remember that she was really cute yesterday… but that was it.
