The word anniversary always used to make me think of special events, like the number of years a couple has been married or how many years on the job. You celebrate and go, "Wow, what an accomplishment!"
These past several days in Florida..first the walk/rally and then the meeting with the police department has been one that I can't easily describe.... so overwhelming, the love..the caring..the exceptional gift of answered prayers. Thank you God, for all of it!
Having family and friends with me not only held me up but assured me that I am not alone on this journey. Knowing that the police do care and want justice for Jim gives me the strength I need to put one foot in front of the other for the rest of my life.
Tomorrow is the 5 year anniversary of Jim's death, but tomorrow I will choose to celebrate that I had this wonderful young man for 27 years...and, "Wow, that was special!"
You are loved and missed Jim. Love, Mom
