One of the things people say to me is that they’re unsure if they should bring Rory up in a conversation.
I understand the hesitation. People don’t want to cause me more grief.
I love Rory.
I miss Rory.
For me, I want to talk about her. Share her love. Share her funny stories.
IF it comes up naturally, then please ask me, let me share a little something about her.
If you had a memory come to mind. If you dreamt about her. If you felt her to close. Please share that with me. It tells me that she’s remembered. It tells me that Rory is still around, loving those she loved in life.
Here’s the caveat. There’s a good chance I’m going to cry. Happy memories. Sad memories. Hard memories. Lovely memories.
Talking about her makes me happy but also makes me miss her.
So don’t be scared of my tears. Don’t think you caused me more grief.
The grief is always there.
But for a few minutes I got to think about, talk about, this amazing little girl.
That I miss.
That I love.
