Yep. Mrs. Davidson. That took less than a week.
My eyes filled with tears as I asked her if this grief thing was going to get any better.
She said yes. She said yes. She said yes. Clinging to her words today.
And look who is still struggling but was well enough to go to school:
Meet Margaret, The Elvinking from The Hobbit.
She aced her presentation. I told her it would be funny if she dressed like Elvis and said to her teacher, "What? I thought I was supposed to be Elvis, The King." At least I crack myself up.
We'll be doing a lot of shopping and packing Operation Christmas Child boxes this weekend in memory of Jack.
Maybe you'll be doing that too. It's a great activity for the kids. Or if you are like me and you enjoy sorting things and sticking them in piles, for moms too.
Much love to you this weekend.
And to reader Laura, who lost her almost 19 year old son 7 weeks ago in a car accident: I am so very, very sorry. I hope this will continue to be a safe place for you to come. I don't have your email address so I've been unable to contact you directly.
Friends, could you join me in sending love and prayers to this hurting mom?
