Eleven years ago today. Sometimes all that eleven years can entail is too much for my brain to process. It can seem like a lifetime and then, other times, it feels as fresh as if it were yesterday. But, every day, for eleven years – on the good days, the bad days and all the days in between, God has been faithful. He has upheld me and strengthened me. He has encouraged and wiped away tears. He has, indeed, given beauty where I could only see ashes. He is good!
I received a note this week from one of Tyler’s childhood friends. What a blessing just for her to acknowledge “I’m thinking of Tyler, too!” She included this poem that she wrote several years ago. I will let it speak for me today. Thank you, Kimberly.
