I’m so glad you’re joining me on this journey! While I have no idea who these words are for or how they may help, I know this process isn’t all about me.
While going back through the weeks leading up to my dad’s move wasn’t the same tumultuous roller coaster of emotions as it was the first go-round, it still had a bit of a sting…however, writing one small piece at a time helps make the memories less overwhelming. There’s a part of me that wishes I’d been able to write during this timeframe, but I couldn’t – being honest, I was barely hanging on…I felt like I had a fingernail’s grasp over the daily chaos and if I slowed down to process emotions through writing, I might fall apart. I was trying, but not completely trusting God to see me through this storm.
And as hard as these days were, it was only the beginning and I’m truly thankful I didn’t have a clue just how much harder the days would become.
