I was realizing yesterday just how many of life’s little celebrations have become obstacles. J.T died on Friday . Friday, once a day of relief for the end of the week, is now an obstacle that I must pack up my trunk of existence and overcome. His Birthday, September 19th, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas…All days that once held the excitement of tradition and are now days that must all be merely survived. The more I speak to parents who have suffered the same loss the more I grasp that this feeling is universal. Lives that were once celebrated are now survived. Just one of life’s many gifts, taken with the loss of a child. Yes we find new ways to extract the joys out of life but its no longer as simple as just existing it now takes a great effort, focused intent, daily prayer for peace, and a stubborn will to make life worth living.
