Pictured Here is You
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Wall to Wall.”
My walls look so different now that I have a frozen teenager. I have no photo to change, no memory to add of Jonathan.Â I see the pain in his eyes, that no glossy smile can hide. In time, the rest of the photos will catch upÂ and pass him by. Adult Daniel and Natalie smile back at me. . . grandkids laugh and play, but Jonathan’s photo has no update.
His growth is now captured in snapshots of how you and I live differently. Hang snapshots of love, forgivenessÂ , generosity, and Â hope on the wall of your soul–they are my new photosÂ of him.
so so sorry for your loss. Sharing could help another family!
Thank you for your comment. Helping others is my hope!
It is sad when one especially one so young takes their own life. I am sure there are many who will feel connected and helped by your blog.
Thank you Donna.
