One Year Ago Today
Saturday, May 28, 2016
It is absolutely beyond comprehension that one would watch your daughter get married, fulfill a many-years dream and then, less than a month later watch her memorialize her husband. It's been a year since our world came crashing down. A year since I sat at my desk and heard those horrible words, "Shawn is dead."
It seems that the world has stopped and started so many times over in the last year. Yes, the world stopped for several days, weeks, months after Shawny died. Every time I thought I was improving, not crying every, single day, it hit again.
I read an article once that said grieving is like sitting by the ocean. It's peaceful, even tranquil, and then a mighty wave CRASHES over you and it's like your loved died a moment ago.
Today's been pretty good. Tears here and there, but not as bad as I truly thought it would be.
Still................. Miss You, Shawny!
