I had forgotten how to breathe these past weeks in anticipation of this day. What should I do? What should I ask of others who have so graciously offered their love and support? I woke up this morning and realized it is just one more day. One more day without her. One more day that I’m still here. So what do I want? I want to savor the day. I want to feel her spirit. I want to be filled with gratitude as I feel the depths of the black hole of pain that is forever part of me. I will try to breathe.
It has been one year. What do I ask of you? To take a breath and be grateful for today.
