Remember that grief is not something you get over
It is something that you walk through...
My shoes are worn and my feet hurt from this walk.
I found this poem and I thought it to be very applicable. I need to remember that my grief is real and will not disappear. I keep hoping that one day I will wake up and be all better. That I will be happy and content and life won't seem so harsh. I know that I can never go back to the old me but I want to be a happier me. I am still so sad sometimes and my mood can change in an instant. I need to remember that this is part of the grieving process and that I can't just skip over it. I need to walk through it. And day by day I will become stronger. I will never forget my babies but the hurt will get better with time.
Casey, Jaimie, and Dustin, I will carry you in my heart always.
