I will not get used to the fact that my son is beyond my reach.  I have come to a certain acceptance of it as fact, and acknowledgement of the truth that I cannot change that fact.

Inside This Grieving Mama’s Thoughts

Ninety miles an hour-that’s how fast my mind can go from here to there.

From what’s in front of me to what’s behind me.

From laughter to swallowing sobs.

Giggles.  Squeals.  Cars running up and down my arm and around my feet.

I will never see Dominic’s children.

Until my brain puts them together and screams, “Oh no!”.
