I told my sister the other day I feel like I’m waiting for the…… Continue reading Constantly Worried
It was my birthday a little over a week ago. 4 days after Valentine’s Day and exactly 6 days after Averie passed away. I woke up on the morning with this heavy feeling. A familiar haunting feeling. Two years ago when Averie passed away I remember my family trying so hard to give me such…… Continue reading Is February over yet?
