The first day of school
Today was the first day of the school year. None of us felt like going back. Back to school, back to a routine. Farther away from beautiful and warm summer weather, away from unstructured, laid back, adventurous and fun summer vacation.
And right on spot for the "could haves", "would haves" and "should haves". It's hitting me that things could have been so different if Lily was here.
But unlike many, I'm relieved that she doesn't have to go to school. Heaven is so much better! I like thinking it's like never ending summer vacation at the beach.
I still miss her presence, what she would've brought to our family. I would have enjoyed watching her grow and learn new things just like I do for her siblings. It's truly a blessing to be part and witness the growth children go through in life! But I'm happy she never will experience the dull and difficult things we all have to go through here on Earth, only never ending heavenly peace.
