Thanksgiving. Thinking of you. So thankful for the time and love we shared together. It was beautiful. So beautiful. I really miss you Tommy. I hope you are peaceful now and that your mind is at rest. Your heart was and always will be here with all of us. You had a big heart that loved with everything you had. I will never forget that. You're beautiful. I love you.

Our teams play each other today. I love you but I'm still cheering against your Cowboys. You wouldn't expect anything different from me. Miss you like crazy though.

I wrote this a few years ago, and came across it tonight.

Sharing just a little bit of what went on in my mind today: While driving this morning, I was looking at the mountains and the turning leaves, and thought of how our lives are so similar to the trees in those beautiful mountains. At times they are bright and vibrant and stand out, but eventually lose their color, until time weakens them and makes them bare, as the wind carries them away with no specific direction or destination as to where they may land. When I watch them float back and forth it reminds me of life, and how you never know where it will take you, when you will soar and when you will fall, but eventually, like those trees, there is life again.

Days, months, years, have gone by, but the heartache hasn't. Been a while since I came here to talk to myself. I've become quite good at talking to myself (and answering). It surely isn't easier, you just learn to keep busy and try to remember the happiness and beautiful memories. Not always easy. Not by a long shot.

A family friend lost her husband recently and today she asked how she can go on living with the pain she is feeling in her heart. I felt the pain in her words. Friends answered that 'he is always with you' and things like that. Truth is though, he is not with her the way she needs him to be with her. She can't see, hear, smell, touch, or talk to him. She can't get him back. That's the reality and the finality of it all that hurts the most. No one can paint a rosy picture of it, even if their intentions are good. What you want is something you know you can't have. That really hurts so bad. It's a new life to live, unlike the one we have become so comfortable with. It's empty, lonely, and painful, and every once in a while you feel strong. You laugh about fun times and remember the good, like that person (and you!) would want and it feels so good to laugh and feel something, anything, other than pain when we think about losing you. Then reality sets in, and you're right back to where you started. It's a vicious cycle. It's like studying for the hardest course in life. Retraining yourself to live without a person who brought such joy into your life. No one wants to study for a test like this, but it's life and sometimes in life we don't have choices.

I wonder sometimes if you can see what's been going on. Your girls are so beautiful and oh how proud of them you would be. Your sister is happier, something I know you always wanted for her. I wonder if you are smiling down at all of this, and if you are the reason your parents and family are able to push through their days, maybe by you giving them a gentle nudge to keep them going and helping them along. You wanted everyone happy always. Everyone is trying their best, but we all miss you beyond measure Tommy. God Bless. Rest. You are shining brighter than ever now. No more pain, no more sadness or suffering where you are. That I am so thankful for. I can picture your beautiful face and smile so clearly, yet so far away. Wait for us, and in the meantime, keep helping us along the way. It's a long, long road that we'd wished we could've walked with you. You're loved and missed so much. So very, very much. I'll never forget you, not in a million years. I'm so thankful to have shared so many beautiful memories with you.

Summer months I miss you most. Sometimes I think of you and I think about how many beautiful things you are missing, though in my heart I know there is nothing more beautiful than where you are now. Sometimes I think about you and think about how many terrible things you are missing. Days like these. Days when hate seems so powerful, and love seems as though it is standing in hate's shadow. In the end love conquers all in one way or another. You always put so much love in the hearts of many. This world needs so much of that right now Tommy. People like you, that shined, loved completely, and made the world smile. Though you are safe from all of this, I still miss the days when you walked this Earth with us. We need more happiness, more joy. Keep shining down; this whole world is in need of love and light from above. I miss you. <3

Sat by your resting place today for a while. How I wished you were here with me to celebrate. I bet you were saying the same thing. You're in a beautiful place Tommy, but none of us could have ever been prepared for life without you. I love and miss you so much. You will always be my bright light in my darkest days. You were with me today in spirit. I felt it. Stay close. Time will bring us all together again someday. Someday. God Bless.

I ask myself all of the time where the years have gone. My answer is different every day. Some days the time is spent inside out, other times right side up, upside down, standing tall, and falling down. The pain sure has been real, and no matter how far back you try to push it from your mind, there it is again. Some days you feel everything, some days nothing at all, just emptiness. A terrible emptiness that swallows you whole. Those are the days you just close your eyes and remember everything you miss the most. I miss the days of looking into your eyes and seeing my reflection through the eyes of someone who believed in me. I hope and pray you saw the same thing and remembered that. I remember your words. Your gentle ways, your promises, and your wishes. I remember that no matter what, we chose each other again and again and stuck by each other's side. I'm hoping it is getting to a point, that after emptying these tears for so long, that there is some room inside to let joy and hope and happiness in. All the things you wished for, for those you loved the most. I think you see that everyone is putting in their best efforts, even though some things just will never be the same again. It's the hardest part. Accepting something you have no control of changing. A few weeks ago I had a dream. I saw nothing. I only heard my voice whisper please don't leave'. I think if I could change anything, those three words would say everything. You're beautiful Tommy. You are so beautiful. You are rainbows in the darkest skies. You are missed. So much. So so much, by so many. Keep shining your love and your light down on those you love. Give us strength to heal our broken hearts and to carry on in a way you would want us to. Trying, but my heart is so broken, and is really hurting tonight. I love you so much Tommy. Rest peacefully. Things will be different someday. Things will be the same someday. God Bless you, your beautiful family, and those whose hearts are aching without you. I could never ever forget you. Not in a million years.
