Missing this girl so much still. I know that grief is just love with nowhere to go and so I put love into the memories that we made together. Sometimes though when it’s quiet, which isn’t often with two kids, and I’m by myself, which is also pretty rare, grief will come calling asking me to find it a place to go and the only thing I can do is tell it to pull up a chair and stay awhile. We cry together, we laugh together, and we share stories. Then, and only then do I say my goodbyes to grief and as it turns into love and heads out into the stars I thank it for the visit and for reminding me how we got here in the first place. Tonight is one of those nights. It sometimes feels like the hole will never close but a part of me knows that it is never meant to. Love you ViVi and I hope there are squirrels all the way down the line. See you in the stars.
