    By myself but I seem to be listening and waiting hoping that Death lets him come home.

    This touched my heart. Days feeling like that are not fun days. This one was a hard one to read. Please know you are loved! xoxo

    I know this isn’t a new post but after reading it I wished so badly to reach out and give you such a big hug. Maybe a hug from a stranger doesn’t help and it would be so cliche to tell you that God is with you… but He is. He grieves with us when we grieve and wants to heal our hearts.

    I’ve run the gamut for some types of grief: abandonment, divorce, infidelity of another (but I have been spared thus far from the grief caused by death). I know how hard it is to feel so alone and it makes my heart ache to read that you felt this way at one time. I do not feel that way now. Stranger though I may be I wish I could hug you!!
