8 Months

8 months later and it is still so raw. I desperately miss my joy, my sunshine...

Grief is a tidal wave that over takes you,
smashes down upon you with unimaginable force,
sweeps you up into its darkness,
where you tumble and crash against unidentifiable surfaces,
only to be thrown out on an unknown beach, bruised, reshaped...
Grief will make a new person out of you,
if it doesn't kill you in the making.

I have become quite skilled at putting on the mask. But inside I am still tumbling and crashing...

Praying for you every day. Know that I'm reaching out for you as you tumble and crash.

I can only imagine Nichole, my heart still aches for your loss. Noah was such a beautiful boy and even though I never met him, I think of him daily!

Noah touched me in a way I can't begin to express. My life is richer from having heard your story.
Please know, that I have you in my prayers.
