Day 6- Something you hope you never have to do in your life.
This took less than a second for me to assess. While I do not even have children of my own yet, my biggest fear in life, is losing them. I cannot on any level, comprehend for one second, what they might feel like or how I would ever deal.
When my friend died, I remember vividly watching his mother scream and reach for his coffin as they lowered him into the ground. That image is forever imprinted in my mind. Over the years since his death, his mom has become a good friend of mine. We have talked for hours on end about Jimmy; she has shared with me much of her grief. For all the sadness I have felt over the years…as much as it hurt me to the core to lose my friend…I cannot on any level comprehend the hurt in her heart.
Almost 11 years have passed since Jimmy died. Although not overly religious, Karen will often say it is her faith that got her through. I don’t know what would get me through. I’m not sure I have faith like that. I’m not sure what I have, but I do know I hope I am never forced to come to grips with it. I don’t want to find out if I can be THAT strong. Ever.
Day 1 –> Something you hate about yourself
Day 2 –> Something you love about yourself
