July 2006

Trying to remember this today...

"To endure the cross is not tragedy; it is the suffering which is the fruit of an exclusive allegiance to Jesus Christ." - Bonhoeffer

Some days I wish I could go back in time. I miss her big hugs, her reassuring voice, and even her really loud sneezes. I miss my mom.

I'm so sorry Mare. I went home for the first time this weekend... it wasn't as bad as I thought it might be, but I just Missed him, you know. And I just kept waiting for him to come in the door and crack some "dad" joke. I read one of the condolence cards that one of his co-workers and best friends had written, and he expressed a similar sentiment, saying, "I'll miss his bald head and his corny jokes..." I know this is not exactly the same thing, but just thought I'd share. It's the small, odd things you never think about that hit me the hardest.

It's a beautiful picture by the way.
