4 months

Today was the 4 month anniversary of my son's death.  Yes, there have been tears, but there has been laughter as well.  Both are gifts from God.  The tears to release the pain of such a loss and the laughter a gift for other family members to give them hope of my return to normal.   And yes, some guilt accompanies the laughter like I'm failing to grieve properly.  I know this, too, shall pass.  I've come through other difficulties and here I am.  Oh, nothing as powerful as the loss of a child...nothing compares to that I'd guess.  But, God is showing me how strong I am and that my behavior will show others how to grieve with God's strength.  Without it, the experience would be unbearable.  Thank you for taking this journey with me if you read my blog.
