I'm sitting outside watching my girls enjoy this beautiful day. They're collecting sand and rocks in their buckets and I'm wishing their brother was here teaching them everything he knew about being outside.
You see, this is another "issue" with grief - it haunts you even on the most beautiful and sunny days. Grief doesn't allow you to just enjoy the simple things. Grief brings on thoughts and wishes that are never going to happen.
Today is one of those days where I wish I could forget about the last 28 months and just enjoy what is in front of me. But then again, that's just another dream that'll never come true.
