The Best Part 

This was the best part of my day.

Charlie’s eye ball.

It was the best part because he was sitting right next to me as we watched Juliana play water polo and I had fun taking pictures of him. He was the one who took my phone and cropped and focused the new photo on just his eye ball. I loved his creativity and truly saw him sitting next to me.

I loved being at the pool with all my kids. I loved being in the sunshine and watching my kids play, while talking with my girlfriends and having my little buddy by my side. 

I truly loved this and was fully aware and present in this moment. Sometimes my mind is preoccupied, but today I was aware and thankful.

Again, I was missing Chase and knew in my heart that I needed to be grateful for all that is good and to be present and to enjoy my chaotic life. And so I did.

Life is good.

What was your favorite part of the day?

  1. My favorite part was talking to you about Chase. It brought out so many emotions and putting ourselves in Laurie’s and Doug’s shoes on how they can possibly live a happy life with this tremendous grief of losing their son. We have had many sad things happen in our own lives, but never to this extent. We again learned never to judge any one until you have walked in their shoes!. Let’s pray we never have to find out! May god watch over our families, and guide each and everyone of us to to love one another, and to be a light where ever we may go! ❤️

    • Mama – today was such a challenge. I was sad and mad and wanted to scream and cry and I think I did it all. I was fully present with the pain. I wanted to make sense of it all. I wanted to take Laurie’s pain away and there is nothing I can do. I have no expectations of her and yet I want to be close to her and offer her comfort, when really there is nothing I can do. I am so heartbroken and it was helpful to be agitated today while we were talking. I needed to talk it out with someone and you were there to listen and to share the conversation. Thank you for listening. Thank you for sharing. This sucks. It just absolutely sucks and we are heart broken. Thanks for listening and sharing your thoughts. You are loved.
