Zach

I still don't quite have the words, even though it's been two years. I was strongly reminded of Zach this past week as my sister lost a very close friend of hers, Lauren Lewis. The seemingly senseless loss is just overwhelming, and I found myself visiting a past post. In a way, it was good to be near the grief again. And it's good to stand here, witness to the incredible things God has done in the past two years.

I find myself wondering what Zach would look like today, what new things he'd be doing. I can't wait to meet him, to hold him, to smile with him. I agree with Adam, it's strange to miss someone you never met. But, oh, we do miss him.

It's somehow fitting, in my mind, that today is dark and rainy. It's not a bad dark and rainy. Just...fitting.

Thanks for remembering with us today.

I agree with you--somehow the weather seems perfect for remembering, imagining, missing, and hoping. These all seem to come inextricably entwined with the thought of Zach, along with an extra gush of love for all of you with whom I've shared the experience of loving and missing that little guy. *big hug*
