|hard to believe that this was 52 Thursdays ago|
It hit me harder than I imagined it would...I feel like I've hit all of the grief milestones expectantly...
I woke up with David and Will at 4 a.m. to get them out the door to Fort Wayne. I went back to sleep.
I woke up later than I had expected but I needed the rest. ( 9 a.m. )
Levi came in to say good morning and he sat with me. As I woke up a bit more, Ethan came into my room with his customarily cheerful "Good morning, Mom!" and I choked. wept for a few minutes, just completely unable to grasp what this day held 52 Thursdays ago. How gigantic that day was in my life.
The Holy Ground we stepped on that day.
The way the Lord has worked in our lives, shaped us and brought things to "light" in each of our lives.
It's just a lot to soak in.
But I am pain-filled sponge. Rejoicing in the Lord for all of the beautiful things He has shown me. He has shown us.
To You, Lord, Thank you for Jack Oliver Young and for bringing JOY into our lives in ways we could never have fathomed.
