To say that I miss you is a wild understatement. I miss you with every breath and every fiber of my being. Every second, every day.
But sometimes, I have such a clear feeling that you are with me, and today had one of those wonderful moments.
We arrived at the beach this afternoon, and I scrambled the girls out onto the sand as quick as I could. Cora wanted to be about neck deep in the waves, and I tried to give her pointers on how best to navigate them. Louise preferred the much drier areas, with the waves just lapping at her. Keeping an eye on both of them while trying to interact with them both of them was slightly daunting. But instead of being stressed (like I usually am), I just felt such joy. They were happy, and I was happy. I know you were there with us. Thank you for that gift of just enjoying the moment.
It's not as good as you being here to enjoy the beach with us all, but I'll take what I can get. I love you, babe.
