It will be 10 years this September. I cannot believe it.
I don’t write this easily. Even though I have faithfully written about the simple ways life encourages us, 3 times a week for 2 1/2 years, it doesn’t mean I do not still feel the complexity of deep heartache.
It’s just that now, I’m not gasping for air.
In the early days and months, I wrote so much. My heart was hemorrhaging. My heart was injected with poison and it needed to come out – my son’s death and some events that followed with people who should have known better.
I just don’t know how 10 years went by so quickly.

A handsome young man, So very sad. Time does not mend but it does put a distance between the freshness of our loss and the subtle sorrow that stalks like a shadow. I know your pain. I know how writing has been cathartic and also like a memorial to me son. Keep writing. We do strike a sad chord with others but also a chord of hope when we share our stories…..only with God can we do this.
“… sorrow that stalks like a shadow.” What a perfect description. Thank-you for your thoughts. They mean so much to me!

So hard to believe it’s been 10 years Kath. Christopher is so beautiful.
I wish I had some encouraging word for you -but I don’t. Each year holds it’s own unique challenge, and while the pain does lessen the fact that you have to face another year without your son simply just sucks. I am sorry for your loss. You will be in my thoughts.
Christopher is so handsome.
Thank-you, Dee. I miss him!
“The complexity of deep heartache” – so very accurate. The years go by but the complexities of the deep heartache of losing a child never go away. Even at 13+ years, I struggle with them. This is not an easy journey…Hugs to you…
Thank-you, Rebecca. 🙂
Ten years. I can’t even imagine. I’m at just 2.5 years. Christopher is such a fine looking young man..
Thank-you, DW. I remember 2-3 weeks after he died wondering what it would be like 6 months, 1 year, 5 years … and here I am at 10.
