It feels like I'm standing on a beach watching the water come, and there's nothing I can do and I can't get away. And I'm not sure I'm going to survive.

Cora's birthday is this Saturday.

Why does this hurt so much more than last year? I've been watching it come for a month now. I just.....ugh.
Thanks to babydoll213 for the siggy! My kids' blog Cora's blog

I think every year it's going to be its own event... they always said grief isn't linear, but I never really understood that until I got further out from the loss. Now it's like you say... some milestones are easier to handle, some hurt a lot... and it doesn't seem very predictable.

I hope the week is gentle on you.

Big . Your water analogy is appropriate. Grief ebbs and flows, and it seems you are at a high tide right now. Perhaps having a new baby has made this harder than last year. Maybe it is bringing what should have been into a sharper focus. We are here for you, so vent and cry as much as you need to.

Oh Brittanie I'm so sorry. I'm with you though. I don't understand why the 2s are affecting me worse then the 1. We're nearing the 2 years here and I'm just broken.

Happy Birthday in Heaven Dear Cora. I'll light a candle for you on your bday

I don't know why it gets harder. I found the angelversary harder after having a live child, like Laurie said it brought it into sharper focus of what should have been. And each year I feel like I am losing a bit of my memories of my son and that is so very hard. to you. I will be thinking about you and beautiful Cora Saturday.
