Kindness

I haven’t written a lot.  I’ve been in a weird place.  Things have happened that I’m not ready to talk about yet.  Let’s just say that I’m done with the Universe…for the moment.  We’re no longer friends.

But I digress, because today is a good day.

We have been blown away by the continued love and support of our friends and family.  They have grieved alongside us and helped us to heal.  They are missing Bennett as much as we are, yet they have continued to put us first.  These people show up, hold our hands and hearts as we continue to muddle through this year.  There has been so much love.

Today my heart is so filled with the love of people that were mere strangers before November 8th last year.  These people stepped forward and made it their mission to put a smile back on our faces.  They donated their time and resources to make our lives better in whatever way they could.  We’re overwhelmed by their love.

Today is a good one, in a sea of loss.  Today I am able to look at our lives and appreciate all that we have and smile.  Thank you for that, all of you that made today possible.

  1. I’ve been thinking of you and Benny a lot as it gets closer to November. I think about Benny frequently when my son says something new or snuggles in a new way. I always hurt for you in those moments. I always wish you had him too. Not one of them goes by where I don’t think of you guys. My heart is as heavy today as it was the moment I learned about Benny. I am one of the strangers. I grieve still, I cry still and I didn’t even know him. I can’t fathom the grief you, your family and friends feel day in and day out. I’m glad you were able to see the sunshine, at least for today. ❤

  2. so happy for glimmer of light you have found in the people who are there for you, and it sounds like you are surrounded by a wonderful “bunch.” You and your family will always be a part of many of our lives now:)
