Grief. . . Like Love - "I still have flashbacks of the moment I realized she died. Certain things can trigger me and I will see her lifeless body in my mind. I could be walking through the grocery store and suddenly the thought ‘surges to the forefront of my mind. It’s a knife to my heart. In that moment I am crippled. I close my eyes tight to squeeze back the tears, smooth out the grimace on my face. Return my gaze to the apple in my hand and continue my shopping." - Replace she with he and this pretty much sums up my current emotional state and experience.
Love his little grave marker. In 6 months, once the ground levels,
we can choose a headstone if we so desire.
If you saw the size of the blessing coming, you would understand the magnitude of the battle you’re fighting. – Author Unknown
This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him. For he will rescue you from deadly disease. He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection. Psalm 91:2-4 NLT
