Love and Healing


It’s been an incredibly difficult week.  Some of you know why and some of you don’t and for now that’s enough.  I just need to put some time and space between this week and my heart.  Duc’s Uncle Mike has also been going through some things so we decided to enjoy the low 70* weather and head to the beach for some sun and fun and food.  It did my heart good to see my two favorite guys playing and having fun.  Michael is also very interested in photography so we switched off taking the photos.

It was a very good day and I am so thankful.

I'm so sorry, Erica. I fogot to mention in my email that you're in my prayers. Obviously, but I wanted you to know. So glad you had a good day today. I love the photo of you and Duc. It's beautiful. (Matty's an "aggressive kisser," too. Love that description.) Hang in there and take the time you need to heal.

I'm not sure what it was in this, but I'm sitting here with tears just streaming down my face. Knowing your healing heart and how it hurts, knowing the joy of those bite kisses I've yet to feel, longing for them in my own life, knowing that there will be more moments when you'll pause and look out at only you know what, and breathe in, wondering -

I hold you in my prayers.

You are in my prayers. I love the picture of you and Duc. My heart hurts for you....yet I know this journey isn't over. Take time to heal and take care of yourself.
