I am too tired to write and too empty to not. One of the few things that makes me feel better is to write, so I am forcing myself to find something to help me feel better. The weekend was full of what I once considered milestones whereas now these dates seem to mark the miles of loss and hurt. Saturday was my wedding anniversary. Sunday was Mother’s Day. Tuesday is National Peace Officers’ Memorial Day. Funny how these dates all seem to coincide. I wish they didn’t. My heart is too heavy to write much more. But, I knew I wouldn’t be able to sleep until I at least tried.
