There are a lot of things in my life that I hope I never have to do, but perhaps the most serious of these is that I honestly and truly hope I never have to outlive my daughter. That would be one trauma that would be too much for me to bear.
I have known several people in my lifetime who have been though such a tragedy, and I’ve seen how it changes them. Some of them are able to pick up and keep on, while others just become consumed by the grief. I don’t think I could move on after losing my daughter. So much of my life has become about her and about doing things for her that I don’t know if I could go back to just being a grown up.
I don’t want to dwell on this one for long, so I am not going to. I’m going to wrap this blog post up right now, so I can go have some breakfast and shower before taking said beautiful daughter to one of her last dance classes for the season!
