She's Close

Busy daily life is a blessing.

It helps to distract yourself from the reality you've lost someone you love.

This morning, I quickly stopped by my parents' house to pick something up.

I rang the doorbell and waited.

As I stood there, I envisioned my mom answering the door.

I forgot for a moment that she was gone.

Then, I remembered and it was like someone punched me in the chest.

That's how it is when you lose someone.

After 4 years, you'd think those little moments would no longer occur.

But, maybe it's her way of letting me know she isn't really so far away.
