I feel like I’m in limbo. And no one else understands what it’s like

Long lost photos that Michael’s mom found and gave to me tonight… After the rough three weeks I’ve had these pictures made me laugh and cry. This whole experience has been so hard. Maybe these pictures will help me hold on to what I think we have, despite the fact that I sometimes lose sight of what could be.

Empty words

Do empty words even count? Probably not, but what else am I supposed to say?

Healing is a choice. It’s not an easy one, because it takes work to turn around your habits, but keep making the choice and shifts will happen.

I have tried to imagine our Lord and Exemplar, Jesus Christ, bustling between meetings or multitasking to get a list of urgent things accomplished.

I can’t see it.

Instead I see the compassionate and caring Son of God purposefully living each day. When He interacted with those around Him, they felt important and loved. He knew the infinite value of the people He met. He blessed them, ministered to them. He lifted them up, healed them. He gave them the precious gift of His time.

That was the thing. You never got used to it, the idea of someone being gone. Just when you think it’s reconciled, accepted - someone points it out to you, and it just hits you all over again, that shocking.

Please make the hurt stop. Please.
