7 years passes quicker than you think possible. We miss Chad daily and speak of him so often. Sometimes the loss feels so fresh we can’t see past it.
I see him, his big blue eyes, his quirky intelligence and sense of humor in our daughters.
Our ‘after’ may not look like I had always imagined it. But it is still good.
It’s still full of everyday victories, memories, laughter & love.
I pause sometimes, just to take an inventory of this life we’ve built after. It’s good; we are good.
And TODAY is the day I received my first-ever paycheck as an RN. Today; of all the possible days in a year. I think of it as a little fist bump.
I am so grateful, today and everyday, ‘before’ and ‘after’.
Thank you for the love today.
We appreciate it so much ♥️
