I took this quote from another fellow blm's blog a week ago, it is from the book Resilience by Elizabeth Edwards
"If I had lost a leg, I would tell them, instead of a boy, no one would ever ask me if I was 'over' it. They would ask me how I was doing learning to walk without my leg. I was learning to walk and to breath and to live without Wade. And what I was learning is that it was never going to be the life I had before."
So very true this quote is and such a great analogy. I don't know what it is like to lose a leg or know the pain that is associated with it, but I do know what it feels like to lose a child and feel the loss of a part of myself along with it. I will never get back that part of my life and I will never feel whole again.
