I had so many questions and people I thought I should call. I knew there were decisions to be made, but I couldn't think clearly or do anything until Justin was home. My repeated thought was, I just have to wait for Justin.
At the same time, and unbeknownst to me, Justin was having virtually the same thought. He was getting feedback from several sources. All were doing their best to be helpful, but he kept saying, I don't know. I just have to get to Emily.
Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. Genesis 2:24This passage took on a new depth.
Last night, my husband did something funny. It was completely unintentional, but it pricked my funny bone and I started laughing. He tried to make it better and only succeeded in making it worse. I couldn't stop laughing. He saw the humor in it and starting laughing, which only feed my growing hysteria. Tears streaked down my cheeks as we laughed together.
It felt so good to laugh . . . and to cry for a whole different reason.
It was only fitting that he was the instigator. The loss of our daughter is difficult, but together, we will be okay.
