Thank-you to everyone who has helped sponsor me in Meals From The Heartland! I successfully met my goal and I will be packaging meals today! I am so excited to give my time to help others in need.
I encourage anyone who would like to involve themselves in events like this to do so. It is truly amazing to see the difference that we can make in the lives of others. It is an awesome feeling.
Joshua has done Meals From The Heartland the past few years, so I will continue to do this in memory of him. He loved doing this, and I’m not even sure if he knew the impact he made on not only my life, but the lives of others in the world. As I sit at my desk today looking at his beautiful smile and think about his loving heart, it takes all that I have to not fall apart. I think about all of the things he is never going to get to do, but then think about all of the accomplishments he achieved while only being here for a little over 13 years.
The empty feeling that I have in my heart can never be replaced, but I know that in everything I do, he is always with me. He has taught me so much about finding the good in everyone, searching for happiness and making diamonds out of rocks. When people ask me about him, it is still hard to get the strength speak, but somehow I find it in me to share everything about him. Fighting back the tears and going through each day is still hard, and I know it always will be. It’s not something I will ever get over, but just get through.
I miss everything about him and still swear I hear his voice. He knows just when I need a visit, and lets me know that everything. For anyone who has ever had to deal with this emptiness, I know it is truly the worst feeling in the world. The only thing that I can tell anyone is to believe in God and know that someday we will all be together again. Something that I always told him was, “The power of prayer is an amazing thing”. I find that more and more true every day.
Keep doing your part and be a blessing to someone today.
