Words from the heart...

Dear friends,



Today marks two years and five months since everything changed.  Eight hundred and ninety one endless days… Passing his closed bedroom door… Staring at his empty chair… Listening for the sound of his voice…  Struggling to live this life without Brian in it…



It is the hardest thing we have ever been forced to do…



It is something I pray others will never experience firsthand…



To that end, it’s no secret that I actively campaign against the use of cell phones while driving, regardless of age and experience.



Last summer, four days before the second anniversary, I was invited to share Brian’s Story as part of a safety awareness campaign.



Several weeks ago, after much deliberation, my faith in His plan once again conquered my fear.  I managed to upload the video clip from the June event on YouTube and shared the link via Facebook in honor of what would have been Brian’s 20th birthday…



At the encouragement of a fellow sister in sorrow, I am sharing the link here with you today:



 







I cannot change anything for my family, but perhaps hearing my words, my voice, will change it for another…



Today, I shamelessly ask, would you please share it and help us bring something good from our loss?  To possibly save a life?



My heart is an open book…



Wishing you sunshine and always, hope…tg
