Yesterday, as I was at the main post office mailing out eBay things, I happened to glance at the young man standing at the next window.... my eyes couldn't believe what I was seeing, my heart took a dive. He looked so much like Tyler, I couldn't stop staring. I hope my chin didn't obviously appear to be on the floor, but there are times when this happens. I watched him talk, watched his eyes, watched his mannerisms, the way he wore his cap........... it's just those kind of bittersweet moments that seem to keep all the good, and the sad, still very real.
I know this story is not a strange one for people who have lost a child, or to those who have lost any loved one. But it keeps life in focus, on what is really important, and that is family - those you love.
