I just started reading your blog after you left such a thoughtful, understanding comment on mine...

I wonder if you ever thought--"How am I going to do this?" And I want to say that if you ever did, to be encouraged because you ARE doing it. It might not be perfect... but day by day you ARE putting one foot in front of the other. Your kids are going to know how loved they are. They're going to know that being real is more important than looking perfect. And that is a gift.

I know it's hard. I can't imagine what life is like in your shoes. I don't pretend to know what you're going through, and perhaps what I said isn't relevant to where you are... but I wanted you to know that I think you are remarkable.

Thank you for showing me that grief is hard, and messy, and unquantifiable, and that that is ok.
