Somewhere on this painful journey since my son was killed in the line of duty, I realized that I needed to turn my head….
and focus my eyes to the future.
I will never stop grieving so, with tears rolling down my face, I had to pick up the pieces of my heart that were smashed and broken on May 18, 2016 and move forward.
Because I’m still living….
and there is more life happening. There is much more ‘life’ coming my way. And this is true of all of my family, friends and Davey’s squad – everyone who felt some of the light in their world go out on May 18, 2016 still has a life to live. God has a purpose for why we are still breathing.
I only have to look at my two little fatherless grandchildren to be reminded that their whole lives are in front of them. They have just begun. And I want to be a fun and positive part of their future.
I look at my daughter and her family and I know that we have many great times filled with precious moments ahead.
Seeing my friends and all of the awesome Blue Family members who have become so important to us, helps me remember that the future holds countless opportunities for special times which make priceless memories.
So I’m challenged to figure out how to move positively into the future. I’m not leaving Davey behind – I’m taking him and all of my cherished memories with me. He loved people and he loved to have fun. He would want that for all of us.
Davey will always be a part of what is happening – even in the future. Because he is a part of us.
And we will never forget.
Miss you, Davey.
