effort

The days have been hard and I watch the pieces of our lives sink. As they descend out of reach I read them like tea leaves at the bottom of a cup; I finally understand how those things were not meant for us. And as I come to terms with the life that we live, the life that we lost and the life that we want, I try to be grateful that it is life at all.

My heart feels your pain. I hope tomorrow will be a better day for you. Life has a strange way of working itself out and showing a sliver of hope when we need it the most.

my words can't answer these posts, yet they shouldn't go unanswered because i want so much for you to know that i am here and i am reading. so i will only say that.

Oh, Grace. This made me cry.....I do think about you both, and not just when I am reading your beautifully written & heartbreaking posts. I bet lots more people are reading than are commenting, and that every single one is moved and helpless.

I'm reading these, too. If you need me to scream out a prayer for you, I'm on call.
