Repost: Bit By Bit-We Don’t Lose Them All At Once


I cannot speak for others but in my case, it seems that I did not lose Dominic all at once.

In fact, I’m still losing him.

Bit by bit, a little at a time, nearly molecule by molecule, his mark on my life, my walls, my world grows smaller.

This is a record of my grief journey and a look into the life I didn't choose.

  1. Last Friday night, I set the dinner table. Our 5, plus 2 guests. Except…..
    Our 5 became 4, 4 years ago last Tuesday. When we began to sit down around the table, some confusion, then realization I had counted our family size prior to August 27, 2015………the room grew silent.
    Indeed….bit by bit….piece by piece…..family moments by family moments…..
    Over and over again.
    Thank you for your Blog! You really do know!
