I've been thinking a lot about Lori these last few days. That's nothing out of the ordinary, but it's been consistent for longer than normal. I'm not sure why, but I know that it hurts as bad as the day it happened.
Time has made it to where I may not cry on a daily basis like I used to, so for that I'm thankful. Unfortunately it doesn't take the pain away totally. They say that time heals all wounds. I disagree. I think just dulls the blade. Now when I miss Lori there's an added element of despair because it's been so long since I heard her laugh, saw her smile or held her in my arms.
Always cherish those you love. Never take them for granted and tell them you love them often. Have no regrets.
