i keep thinking
about all the parents who lost a child today — parents who, just like me, have christmas presents tucked & hidden away in all parts of the house.
moms & dads who no longer have a child to give those gifts to.
with christmas just ten days away, i keep thinking about how christmas goes on without your child. how the holiday season will always be marred with tragedy, how christmas will never be the same for those parents & their families.
and i can’t help but wonder, how does one goes on … how?
