A Trick Question

Which is worse?

a) that first moment after waking when you are conscious that the bed you are in is forever empty but for your own aching self.

b) the endless minutes after lights out when you fear that sleep's merciful oblivion will forever elude you?

c) there is no right answer.

d) all of the above.

Thinking of you. In those moments you feel alone, know that there are many people who care about you and your daughter. While that certainly can't "make up" for the enormous void and loss, we are here, and we care.

Realizing anew that there has been a loss, in the first moments of waking, is perhaps sharper, but the end of the day is longer and darker.
My heart goes out to you and your little daughter today.

Waking up to a loss this great hurts so badly. I'm sorry.

Thinking of you today.
