this is it. exactly.

this is it. exactly.

I’ve written.

I’ve read.

But this one statement made by a grieving mother says it perfectly.

I wish all the people who spoke in unkind ways after losing my son, which did nothing but make me hurt worse, could read what this mother said after her child’s death.

Even 10 years later, it is still true.

I am still trying to figure out how to be happy and sad at the same time, hopeful and devastated, looking forward while still looking back. – Jess McCormack
