Every Day Is Minute By Minute

Every day, I have to take things minute by minute, because grief washes over me in waves at unexpected times. I miss Colt so damn much. I want him back in this world. I want to hear his voice again. I want to hug him again. But the reality of it is....that won't happen.

And no, I don't say these things to get sympathy. I don't need to be told that things will get better. Life without your loved one does not get better....it is just a different "normal".
