I took this picture on our last Grand Forks trip - exactly one year ago yesterday
I woke up to snow today. And the six month mark since Teresa left this earth for a place where it probably never snows unless you want it to.
I know it’s a cliché, but the world really did feel brighter with Teresa in it. She always had something going on, something funny to say, a new idea, new recipe, or new restaurant she wanted to try. She made life exciting and it doesn’t feel the same without her.
I am fortunate to have other good friends and I’m more thankful than ever for them, but a cousin/friend that’s been a constant part of your life from the beginning can’t be replaced. I can’t let go of her yet. I very much believe I will see her again in heaven, but I’d really like to be seeing her on earth as well. We have a lot of things we need to talk about – six months worth, to be exact.
If you have a minute, please say a prayer or send good thoughts to Teresa’s husband, kids, mother, and family today. Everyone says that time helps, so hopefully the next six months are better than the last six.
