It was 3 months yesterday... I wish I could say that the pain is a little less than it was the day Ollie passed, but it's not. It's just different. Sometimes it actually hurts a little more with each day, one more day that I haven't held him. It is nice to know that 3 months have passed since his death, and I still manage to love him more with each day, just like when he was alive. And, I've also learned to appreciate things I didn't notice before... Today, I'm so thankful for Maddie and the beautiful day we were able to spend almost completely outside. We found these gorgeous purple flowers on our walk today. I may be going through the most horrible experience most people could imagine, but I have the most wonderful thing in the world to balance that... My sweet, happy, healthy Maddie. We love you, Ollie ❤️
On January 3, 2013, my 1 yr old son, Ollie, passed away. That's where my life "before Ollie" ends and my grief journey begins... My new normal, my path toward healing, my life "after Ollie". I'm a grieving mother who believes in hope. This is my story.
