Drake and I concluded the year 2007 with a trip to Judson’s grave site yesterday-just the two of us. It was the first time we have visited together without anyone else.
We held each other.
Drake was sobbing. I was wailing. We were also praying and crying out to God in raw emotion.
Drake is one of the few people with whom I feel completely comfortable letting my emotions flow freely. As I felt the comfort of his embrace, the depth of his own pain, and the weight of our circumstances, I was overcome with gratitude that I am walking this path with him. I cannot imagine this journey without my Drakey.
This is our path, and even though it is excruciating, what a gift that we can walk it hand in hand.
