Georgia & I are both at home today. I thought maybe this year would be the first time we would actually go to work and face the world and try to be normal. But no, it still doesn’t feel normal. I don’t know as it ever will. The date is insignificant to most as they go about their daily lives – Christmas shopping, families and the like. But to us, this is THE one day that tears at us inside.
Eight years have passed since Maddie gave up her brave fight. The memories may fade and the images are not so vivid, but the pain still lingers. It sits there just below the surface every minute, every hour and every day. But today it explodes through that surface. I don’t care for anyone or anything today except my beautiful wife and my beloved angel.
We love you Maddie and we miss you terribly.
