today was an ordinary day for everyone else. Not for me, not for any of us. Today marked another year that we have had to go on with out you. Sometimes I think my heart can't break anymore, and then days like today happen. And it feels like I am losing you again. I miss you. I hope that you are proud of me. I know that I am not as ambitious as the others, but I am happy. I hope that this is all that you wanted for us. To be happy. I miss you so very much. I wish you could be here to help guide my boys, to love and hold my grandkids. To know that they know of you and that they too love and miss you.
