It was a year ago today that I was preparing to leave my office and head up to Maine for a long weekend, a trip I'd planned weeks in advance. I was wrapping up, shutting down, Mike and HR were in the car waiting for me when I got the call from my sister.
"Did Dad call you?" Tears in her voice.
"No." But I knew.
An empty space in the world, never to be refilled.
One year ago today. I still can't believe it.
I feel like I haven't even gotten started missing this tough, smart, and above all, loving dear woman in my life. But she's not waiting on me to miss her.
Look at that beautiful soul in her eyes. That's still out there if we look for it. Love to every one of her stardust collectors on this day and all the days.
