Psalm 82:3


Never shall I forget that car ride home the afternoon of November 23, 2009

Never shall I forget the sounds of my screams; “Wake him up, Wake him up!”

Never shall I forget my girlish naïvity fleeting as I realized his ‘sleep’ was one never to be woken from

Never shall I forget Noah

My best friend

Partner in Crime 

Thunder Buddy

My big brother

Never shall I forget the rain that made it feel as though God was weeping with me

Never shallI forget my first bitter taste of injustice

My new-found hatred for cancer

The monster that stole life away from Noah before he even got to really live

Leaving me empty and him forever young

Never shall I forget that heartache

That emptiness 

Never shall I forget the shock from what happened 

And the yearning for what never would

Never shall I forget being forced to face my own mortality 

Realizing that I, too, would die

Never shall I forget the happiest years of my life

Cut far too short 

Never shall I forget those big blue eyes, that sweet smile, and infectious laughter

Never shall I forget these things as long as I live

Never.

I've looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all

I am struck to the heart by reading this. It seems that you have been through things in your life none of us could fathom, they're so twisted and wrong, but you still write with incredible resilience and power.
