Yesterday I went to the funeral of my cousin’s 4 year old son, who died in a car accident. A perfectly healthy child, gone in an instant. I’ve been heartbroken for my cousin, what an unbearable loss to experience. I simply cannot imagine what she must be feeling. I simply cannot imagine how she will move forward from this loss.
I always look for meaning in the things that happen. I have a child with a diagnosed “early expiration date”. I know Nathan is fragile. And I am realizing more and more what a miracle he is. To be with us 9 years. To have the wonderful life he has. To continue smiling through all his tribulations. To be here, breathing. What an incredible opportunity to share with this beautiful soul.
