Finding Ways to Cope

My run went much better today. The crying has not been as bad. I found that if I talked with my family more, it helps a TON. So I’ve been on the phone with my brothers...hours and hours through out the day. We talk about Iron Chef America, Man vs Food, Professional Bowling, and Women’s college swimming. Random, unimportant topics that get us laughing and keep our minds off of other things. It sounds weird, but just being able to talk and share with them helps.

Yes, we talk about Josh too. Like today, we were talking about some older pics I found of Josh with our niece, Bella. Sweet photos of him teaching her how to bounce a basketball at 2 years old.

We talked about how he was going to be an amazing father to his twins. How we are going to be there for Alicia even more now. How much we miss him. 

It hurts, but it helps to talk to each other...ya know? It helps us to always remember him--and how incredible he was. It helps us to cope. 

~We love and miss you, Josh. Thank you for sacrificing your life for our freedom.
