Mommy, Sissy Loves You

This morning was one of those days as a parent that I wanted to bang my head against the wall. Wyatt had been throwing temper tantrums nonstop.

How the Grief Continues

Our daughter died more than 19 months ago. The grief is not as raw as it was in those first few hours, days and weeks. But yet it is still there. Ever present. Like a gigantic wound that never heals.
