The sun sets on another day…
Sunset was snowy, and full of, well, snow. The night came quickly and more snow came with it.
Today is the anniversary of my nieces death. A lot has changed in a year. Over this time we have all learned to grow as we could, and we are moving forward in our thoughts, and in how we all approach the world. Some notable items:
The Haley Sue Foundation was formed. It is a group that may find a calling in many areas but mostly wants to do justice to a young woman who lived every day to its fullest.
My sister and I wrote a book, “What NOT to Say to People Who are Grieving”. In spite of the name it is a positive books focused on how to approach people who face loss. It was a labor of love and for countless hours we revised and revised again.
We had a great giving day, and you can see it here.
We kept going.
Maybe that’s all we can do sometimes, if find the strength to never give up, and to be there no matter what. Someone wise once said they would be there no matter what, and I know now they did not understand what that meant. It is a commitment to more than an idea, and instead a commitment to make every day and amazing journey that you face with a positive attitude, no matter what.
I miss you Haley, but you would know that.
So as the sun sets on another day, we all face days like this, and I took these few writing moments to honor a year ago when we lost someone special. Every day is an adventure, make sure you keep yours positive, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and love a little more…
