… Christmas is coming and the stress of missing him is getting harder to handle.
… you’re focussed on everything Christmas and every single moment is blocked off between Christmas crafting and school stuff.
… you’re getting more and more on edge… snapping at those you love.
… your amazing fiance calls you on what is really bugging you… pokes the “Mark box” you’ve been trying to keep closed inside your heart and emotions.
… you fall apart… in his arms…
… he just lets you cry
… he spends time doing all the amazing things that make you feel incredibly safe and loved…
… he tells you he loves you and that it’s ok, the grief storms will always be there and he’ll be the shelter you need.
I finally told him about my nightmares. And the visitation. And he held me while I cried.
I am so very grateful for the man who will weather my storms. I am so incredibly lucky to have found a man who loves me to pieces…and picks me up and puts me back together when I fall apart.
