I used to post annually on the death days for my daughters. Then I let a rather nasty troll keep me from it because I did not want to deal with the pain.
But Jessica died on the 26th of January, and I do not forget her. As for the troll, may they be cursed to hold on to their own pain, until it is consumed and frees them.
I also wanted to remember and note the passing of Mary Adams. She was in the same industry I am in, though in Oklahoma, not North Texas, and blogged at http://bystudyandalsobyfaith.blogspot.com/
She died late last year, the word just got out this month.
Finally, today is also my wedding anniversary. I am so grateful for my wife. She means everything to me.
The confluence of death, loss, joy and remembrance is always almost overwhelming every January 26, but it is my life. With Win in it, it is well worth living. With my children in it, it is well worth striving for.
May your lives be filled with things that make them worth living and worth striving.
