I did not cry today. Today, I pulled up my big girl panties and soldiered on. I did what I had to do because it has to get done. I'm doing my best to help the boys as much as possible, and no - we aren't doing things they way you made me pinky promise we would do, but you know what? I'm a Williams, born and bred. You knew I wouldn't listen because of that, and I dare ya to come haunt my rear.. we'll just have to fight about it through supernatural ways.
You have no idea how much I miss you. It may be a while yet before I'm able to go downstairs. I'm still avoiding being in the house alone for as long as I possibly can, but that time is nearing its end.. life has to return to normal for some, and I need to find my new normal. I wasn't ready for you to leave. Nowhere near it. You always said you'd live forever because there were too many people you hadn't met yet that you were supposed to tick off .... is this the legacy you leave me? Is it my turn to carry that torch?
I didn't cry today. But I might cry tomorrow. Or the next. But I'll keep moving forward. Just sucks I was losing Pam and now I've lost you, too. It's a little much to handle... but I didn't cry today.
