One year ago tonight, I thought I was being paranoid.

One year ago tonight, I was laying in a hospital bed watching a doctor search and search for a heartbeat the wasn’t there.

One year ago tonight, I was looking into a woman’s eyes, who if given the opportunity would have been a million other places than in that room.

One year ago tonight, I made four separate phone calls to the people who I love the most in the entire world, and told them all the same thing. “She’s gone.”

One year ago tonight, I lived out what no parent ever wants to hear and ever wants to endure.

One year ago tonight, I thought  I would never smile again.

One year ago tonight, I was preparing for the hardest introduction I would ever experience, an introduction that would change me forever.

One year ago tonight, I started a journey that would take me to places I never dreamed I would travel.

One year ago tonight.
