There are things that we don’t want to happen but have to accept, things we don’t want to know but have to learn, and people we can’t live without but have to let go.  ~Author Unknown

I was watching W playing with his cars and my husband turned one over and read the “Made in France” label on the bottom.  “Did he get these in France?” he asked.  “Yes” I said sadly thinking of how my sister and I played with him in his room, picking out our favorite cars.  My son now plays with them never knowing the uncle who used to play with them 25+ years ago.  I have grieved with the hurt he has caused the family but I now grieve for my kids who’ll never know him.
