The Sunday Salon used to be a meme but was getting so huge it became unmanageable, so it is now a Facebook group that has become an informal week in review
gathering place for bloggers.
It is also a place to share our thoughts about things of a bookish nature.
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by
Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer
~ It’s a chance to share news~
A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.
Happy SUNDAY Everyone!
The first Father’s Day in 30 years without Kris. I never imagined when we were keeping track of his first tooth, his first haircut, his first step. that our lives would turn into a series of firsts without him. We are heartbroken. Kris was a wonderful father, this should have been his 3rd Father’s Day, but now he will miss his daughter’s first day of school, her first dance, her first date, her first time behind the wheel. He will miss the daily interactions, seeing her learn and grow. While I am still incredibly sad and tears still fill my days I find I am mad. Mad at Kris, mad at myself, and mad at God. No parent should have to experience the joy a child brings and then the heart wrenching grief when that child is taken away too soon. I try to understand the pain my son must have been in and while we have gotten some answers it doesn’t take away the pain or the longing to see his face or hear his voice. I keep hoping to wake up from this nightmare and have my precious son back where he belongs. Mother’s Day was so hard but today seeing my husband’s pain is almost harder. We both would do anything to change what happened, we thought we did everything we could but know we should have done more. Now all we have a few pictures like this one, his voice on a few voice mails and videos, and our memories but that isn’t enough. This year will continue with many more firsts, hopefully by the seconds, the thirds, the tenths, things will get easier. We keep getting up each day and putting one foot in front of the other but he is always in our thoughts. My faith in God has been shaken, I truly hope there is a heaven so I will be able to see him again.
