You’ll have to forgive me if all of this is still a bit raw.
Sometimes those golden sentiments of happy-happy joy-joy work in the opposite direction.

Some loved ones are gone because they’re in a better place now. Others are gone because I am.
Had you told me two days earlier that this would have been Christmas, I would have screamed in worried agony. I would have called it a failure and seen my biggest fear become a reality.
You’re here, but your thoughts are a million miles away. One day, you’ll be up to talk about what that is. But that day is not today.
Sure, there were times that I was wrong. It wasn’t every time, though.
