I went for coffee with my lovely friend Annie who unfortunately also lost her first born son Xavier. She now has a little pocket rocket of energy Kai who is heading towards two years old. He is the cutest and happiest little guy. It was nice to spend time with them both this morning and talk about life, loss and love. It is also nice to see how Annie is going now with her rainbow bub. Annie wrote a beautiful book dedicated to her son Xavier for all the loss parents out there and you can check it out here. It is strange how grief and loss can bring so much love into peoples lives. It can bring more meaning. It can give you a chance to ‘rethink and recalibrate’ how you want to live out your everyday. It also allows you to have deeper conversations about the stuff that really matters. It allows you to make new found friendships with those that have been through a similar thing. I am so grateful for the new friends that have become family to me in this past year. The ones who just get it. I am grateful for all my friends and family that have walked this path along side us. Even the ones that don’t really understand what we are going through but send their love.
Thank you buddy for bringing so much love into my life.
