Some days I am thrilled to see Andrew’s friends growing up
These things make my heart sing!
I am glad they have healed and are moving on with their lives.
Other times these things bring me sadness
Reminders that he is gone.
I am not jealous or angry that he is not doing those things.
Those things were not in The Plan for Andrew.
Early admission to heaven was The Plan.
But once, just once, I would like to see his smiling face in the pictures at their wedding,
their opening night
their baby dedication
their new apartment.
Or maybe twice.
