Today, August 30th is National Grief Awareness Day. This day recognizes that the time it takes to heal from loss does not have a prescribed course and is a reminder closure comes in many forms. When a loved one dies, the void they leave affects everyone differently.
For me, grief comes in waves. One minute I am fine, the next minute I am sinking into sadness and/or depression. I miss my son. I grieve for the past and I grieve for the future he will never have. I grieve for the memories I have and the memories that will never happen. When Colt died, life changed forever, and nothing can make it better again.
