A Gift From Riley

I realized today what a precious gift my son Riley has given me.


A new level of FRIENDSHIP that I couldn't have known before.

I am certain that God placed pivotal people in my life,

at just the right time,

to carry me through my grief.

Through it.

They carry me even today.

And the network continues. With the advances in technology, grieving families can now find other families in similar situations with a click of a mouse.

There's incredible comfort in knowing you're not alone.

At first, we are carried. Then, we are able to carry.

And surprisingly, without knowing it, as we are being comforted...

the ability to hold the hand of another grieving mom brings comfort in it's self.

I think for me, it's more than just FRIENDSHIP. I feel it's a calling. A purpose.

I'm intrigued to see where this journey leads.

And it's all because of Riley.
