Life goes on

Yes, I have missed a few days. No, I didn’t go anywhere. I have been staring at the dwindling list of archived entries that remain. And wondering what I can do to halt the march toward its inevitable conclusion.
As of May 4, 2007—the date of Nattie’s previous post—a mere two weeks remained before we all got the terrifying diagnosis. And no one guessed that we had but three weeks after that to share her earthly presence.

The detailed reminders of those days remain to be published. And the events they describe painfully remembered.
It is often said, “if only we had known.” But if we had, what could we have done? What could we have done differently? What words were left unsaid?
And why can’t we just make it stop?
It is too much to comprehend. Too much to consider. And life goes on.
Thank you for caring.

    The last few entries have made my breath catch in my throat. I read each one and then calculate how many days were left and I wonder, “What if I have only those many days left?” It is a reminder to live each day.

    Reading the last entry was so hard. I remember. I remember. I remember. And it hurts.
    But that doesnt mean I would trade even a moment of the remembering to lessen the pain. I know you feel the same.

    ((((Nattie’s Daddy)))) Sometimes grief comes back like a ton of bricks sitting on our chests, the enormity of it all overwhelming. She was such a humongous blessing to all who knew her. I can’t imagine how many lives she touched both directly and indirectly. She will forever be in my heart and I cannot wait to give her a big hug when I get to Heaven.

    I stumbled in here while Googling the phrase “the Rock who is higher than I”. I’ve been browsing through many pages with growing astonishment. This read has brought tears to my eyes.

    Walter is a gift at the time of these entries being reposted. Walter, thank you for reminding us of how Nat still lives.

    …grief is a difficult journey. I just lost my Daddy July 1st this year. He was sick for a few mths, nothing could be found, his colon ruptured and when they went in they found 4th stage cancer, we had merely 7 more wks with him. We are grateful for those wks, cuz they allowed us to say to each other what we needed to say…and you are right, even extra time doesnt change what laid before us. The fact that life goes on when one so loved is no longer with us, is nearly as difficult as the loss. Life feels rather alien without him…I share this, because I understand even more deeply what you and your family have been walking thru. I am grateful that God is ever near and even on the worst day is present to get us thru. (((hugs)))
