Today marks one entire year since my brother left this earth. Sometimes, it feels like it happened yesterday, and other days it feels like a thousand years have passed.
Some days, my mind still has trouble wrapping itself around the fact that you’re gone. I can still remember the way I felt when I got the news that you were gone- it was like my heart was breaking into more pieces than it was even made of.
This year was filled with many tears and many heartbreaks. I had to step back and re-evaluate many things in my life and refocus the direction I was headed in. The truth is- the loss of my brother has completely changed me. Although I wish with everything inside me that I could share a bear hug with him again, losing him as shaped me into the person I am today.
I had a big long blog post planned but as I sit down to write, I find myself coming up short with the words to say. My energy is very low, and I know that I need to step back and focus on me.
As always, I am so thankful for our friends and family who have shown us such amazing support through this.
