Sean would have been 43 today. He loved his birthday and he loved to celebrate with food and friends. I have been asked by a few today how I am feeling and…I am feeling good.
After the year of firsts being over and done with, I didn’t realize the year of the seconds would be even more painful. Anguish surfaced with an unquenchable force. The spinning realities of parenthood and the complexities of personalities conflicting with the new adversities of daily life was a wild ride. However, with reflecting on the challenges and the victories, life is good. I sense there is a season of newness coming with possibilities never imagined possible approaching. Despite the pain that still remains, there is a faint beauty in bloom.
We honor you, Sean. The kids and I are reminded daily what an amazing man you were and the incredible, unquestionable impact you have left on our lives. In this new dawn, time rests restlessly. Sun in the sky, you know how I feel.
