As part of his daily homework, Christopher had to make up sentences to use the words “Son” and “Sun”.

I know I had no control over Matthew dying, and that I can’t keep everything sad away from my kids, but I thought that I was doing fairly well at not being one of those bereaved parents that makes everything about their loss. Seeing this makes me feel like I have not only failed at that, but I’ve also failed at protecting the children I have left.
It just makes it worse that I am trapped in my tiny house because both of our vehicals were destroyed this week. I can’t even go and get a Diet Coke and chocolate to make myself feel better.
What is a girl to do?
