Days of Thanks #7
Today, I am grateful for the healing power of the passage of time. During this week last year, I was in very bad shape, trying to somehow prepare myself for Hudson’s birthday. This year, I am very, very sad. Of course I am. But the weight feels different from last year. Any parent who has lost a child knows that the expression “Time heals all wounds” is just wrong. This wound will never, ever heal. But time does help dull the sting somewhat. I have yet to make it through the actual day, I know, but I feel stronger this year than I did last year as I brace myself for it.
