Supported on Every Side

My last post was about Tom & I going to work on the Peyton’s 3rd Heavenly Anniversary.  We did go to work :)

When I got to my office, I sent an email to all the partners explaining what day it was and that my plan was to be very productive and leave around 3:00.  I received several responses expressing support and prayers.  I am very blessed on my job.

I was expecting company that evening.  I was not disappointed.

We had every form of support, promises of prayer, emails, text messages, Facebook postings and lots of hugs.  It is hard to live without Peyton and it sounds selfish, but it feels good to not be the only ones missing him.  I got an opportunity to talk to a few of the girls.  One of them told me she had asked her mom if it was “normal” to still cry about Peyton sometimes.  They also talked to me about where they were and their reaction to the news of Peyton’s passing.  I don’t know why, but I like hearing about it.  It is sad and it hurts me to relive their pain with them, but their stories affirm the fact that Tom & I are not alone.

I love these people and I cannot wait to see what they become.

Thanks for reading :)

Even though accompanied by tears, it is good to remember... together.

Still praying for you and still wishing I could have known Peyton! One day I will. :)
