One Year Later

Well, today marks the one year anniversary of the worst day of my life. I knew that the entire week, starting with Kathy's birthday last Friday and ending on Nov. 3, was going to be tough. I finally realized that there was no way I could work through this time so I have taken some time off of work.

I really had no idea what I was going to do today; what are you supposed to do at a time like this? Kathy and I decided to just stay busy so we cleaned the house from top to bottom...it needed it. After the girls got home from school we went to the cemetery. After dinner we watched Sharleen's new DVD of Singing in the Rain that she got for her birthday.

By way of comparison today was nothing...but I am not sure what I thought it would be. Nothing has changed, but I guess I am becoming used to the idea that this is how things are. I cannot believe it has been a year...it seems like yesterday and a hundred years ago all at the same time.

You will never be alone on this day others will share your pain. Thank you for showing me the trunk. Thank you for continuing to allow me in your life. I will work hard to make the same spiritual connection to your other children that I have made with Emily. They too will know that my love for them is strong. Emily will always be with us.
