Today Pipsqueak is exactly the same age as Rebecca was the last time we saw her.
What strikes me first is that we didn’t have her for very long. And yet, she transformed our lives so completely. So much happiness in one little body.
The grief doesn’t go away. It doesn’t even get better. It does change though, becomes more manageable. It becomes something that you can live with, more or less. Some days more, some days less. It manifests itself in surprising ways. Even with the two babies that came after Rebecca, she is still missed so very much.
