All day I've been fighting back the tears, because the girls and I had such a fun day inside while the rain poured, and I didn't want to make the weather even gloomier. But now I am alone in the house while Eric is out with the girls, and the tears are coming down like the rain outside. I miss him so much today. I want to hear him laugh just one more time. I want him to give me that "awkward" sister hug. I want to hear him tell a story. There's this empty space in my heart. It will heal, little by little, but it will never completely go away. And I don't want it to, for I want to be reminded of my big brother whom I thought was invincible.
I love you, Steve!
