Taking a step back

 Deep breath.  
Stepping back.  
I feel like I'm made of glass today - broken at the slightest touch.
Trying to keep from being shattered.
Keeping above the surface.
Breathing, waiting it out ~ the anticipation worse than the anniversary.
Keeping busy, delaying the inevitable ~ because, 
in the end grief does not allow herself to be denied. 
And, then I will piece back together ~ for another year without Nathan, 
a year filled with blessings (both counted and taken for granted), 
a year wrapped in moments filled with emma, annie, & paul.


  1. (((hugs)))


  2. Aimee - first, thanks so much for stopping by. Second, I am loving your phots of the flowers. These are absolutely lovely!
    Lastly - I didn't know about Nathan - I read back to discover more about your grief. I don't think we ever get over it, but it does lessen in time. (I know it sounds simplistic) When one feels great love (as you have), then grief is great as well, I am afraid. I will include you in my prayers.

  3. pretty good photo of an ant. what's your next bug?

  4. LOL, Rose -- right? A whole month of bugs ;-) Not going to see that on this blog!
