Yesterday was our last first. The last holiday that would be our first without Benny.
It was hard to see the little ones walking door to door as our big one raced around the neighborhood. Thank god for Lyla and her too big box. She needed a hand to hold to walk up the steps. We got to help a little one. Maybe that’s why it didn’t hurt so much.
It’s contagious when the kiddos are that excited. No matter how bad you feel, it’s hard not to get excited with them. It’s hard to stay sad.
We made it through a year of firsts. Where did the year go? How did we get back here so quickly? How did we keep going?!?!
I cannot believe it.
