Belatedly Thankful

by - November 25, 2012

This week has been emotionally exhausting.

On Tuesday morning, I got what is arguably the most devastating phone call I've ever gotten in my life. It was an expected phone call, but just because something is expected doesn't mean it's easy.

I was in the shower when it came. I had woken up earlier than I needed by about 30 minutes and for once decided to go ahead and get up.

I got out of the shower and saw that I had two missed calls from my Mema's numbers, one voice mail and a text message from my mom. I checked the voice mail, assuming it was something about Thanksgiving. I was wrong.

I can't count how many tears I shed this past week. I can't describe the sadness I felt. I can tell you that the only way I made it through was because of the people I surround myself with on a daily basis. This post is for them.

Thank you.
