Today my grief for Mitchell has completely worn me out. It usually hits me the day after a big anniversary date.

Even after a good workout this morning where I released a lot of energy and tension, my throat and head are tight and I’m having trouble focusing. I’m exhausted and my body aches.

That’s what grief does to a person.

Frank has a program at school tonight and I’ll be there, in full make-up, smiling and cheering for him. But my grief will be there under it all.

Love your children. Spend time with them. Pray for a cure for cancer.
