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.
