Five Months

Tonight I looked over much of what I have written here and on Search the Sea and I thought, Yes, this is pretty accurate. I think that this is what I would have to say if I ever lost a child.

Stunned. That was my reaction when I saw the title of this post. How can five months have passed? I know this is true because I can count but if it still feels fresh and raw to me, how much more so to you?

Sending love and prayers.

I've been amazed with you. I honestly cannot imagine anything worse than losing a child. Other than putting us both under the big umbrella of grieving, I wouldn't begin to compare my pain with yours, and yet mine floored me. You have turned yours into the most eloquent prose description of mourning I have ever read and an uplifting response to it that doesn't flinch away from the ugliness and pain. Do you realize what you've done here? It's incredible.

What you've expressed in these months has haunted me deeply, GG.

I thank you for this true gift of sharing.

You are ministering through these words....a reminder that God calls us simply to live truly as we are....to be who we must be for the moments we are in. Thank you for sharing you, and as such, serving as light to a hurting world.

So much pain that is still so raw. But the way in which you've shared your pain with those of us who call you our friend and your readers have been given an immeasurable gift in your writing. Thank you for that. You continue in my thoughts and prayers daily.
