The end of this week will mark 6 months since I touched, held, smelled, or kissed my precious daughter.  These 6 months have gone by so fast, and yet remembering the last moment that my lips touched her skin feels like forever ago.  Her physical presence is missed more than I have words for, but […]

I’ve stopped counting the days.  Counting from the moment that I watched her exhale her last breathe.  When I physically felt her heart stop under my right palm.  From the day that my existence as I’d known it for the last 10.5 years shifted.

All that’s left to do is love…

Waiting my turn

It’s hard to wait.  We live in a society where most anything can happen instantly.  Information is at our fingertips.  Packages can be ordered and delivered in the same day.  When we want something, and have to wait, it may cause frustration or impatience. I feel like I’m living in a season of “waiting.”   […]
