Molly's Spirit

I'm spending the evening alone while Denise and Molly visit Denise's family, and, I must admit, Molly's absence is having a more profound effect on me than anticipated. Earlier today, I looked forward to watching a couple movies at full volume by myself, but instead I sit here keenly aware of her missing spirit, her little life to which I've already become attached more deeply than any other.

What a sweet, sweet sadness.

Oh, Bryan.....this is a lifelong thing.....the feeling doesn't change. Brad stayed over at a friend's house for the first time during the Christmas holidays (first time in eight years he's been away from us overnight). We weren't sure what to do with ourselves! Our lives become redirected towards this other life.....no one can imagine without having experienced it!
