I'm really torn here.
Over the past several months, I've met & made friends with amazing people. But at the same time, I hate that we ever met. At least, I hate how we had to meet. And in this crap situation we're all living in, so many people go out of their way to be kind & do wonderful things for everyone else.
One of those people is Malory, who lost her 2nd child, a little girl named Janessa, right around the time we lost Joel. She created a site called Every Life Has a Story in order to make videos for parents that have lost children. I mean, ignore the fact that I think it's very kind of her to do that...let's just remember the woman is a mom & wife. I'm happy if I get a chance to sleep more than 6 hours a night, nevermind everything I do in my daily life AND making things like this for people. That holds true for so many people out there who do similar things as a tribute to their lost children as well as others.
As I said, Malory makes videos. She's made several, I've watched them all & lived the heartache of another family living in similar shoes as ours. This time, however, the video was different. This time, it was Joel's turn...
Malory wins my nice person of the week contest. It's the first week I've given such an honor. And I can pretend I'll start handing that honor out from now on, but we all know how bad I am at following through with things. But lets enjoy this weeks winner anyway.
