I have spent the last few weeks thinking a lot about the upcoming anniversary. January 8th has loomed large in my mind for a while now. I have thought a lot about being sad and grieving and what life looks like without Laurie Kingston. I think I have come to some understanding of sadness and grief but I am still at a loss as to what life looks like without Laurie.
I do know that it ok to be sad. And I know that Laurie touched a lot of wonderful people who are also sad. I am thankful for everyone that reached out today, and especially over the last year. I feel cared for.
