This August 2nd marks the two-year anniversary of life without Maggie Lee. The Shreveport Times ran a piece about a few of the amazing things which have happened because of Maggie Lee for Good. http://www.shreveporttimes.com/article/20110731/OPINION0106/107310326/Jinny-Henson-Two-years-later-kindness-generosity-continue-blooming-from-tragedy
While I would give anything to have her back, and hear that that feeling subsides little as the years go by, I know that we will always be a table with three legs. As time goes by, you learn to put the heavy stuff on one corner and just where to place the chairs in case things topple, but these gymnastics only serve to remind you of what you lost.
Then again, at least I have a three-legged table while some people have no table at all. I am vastly aware of what I have left. August 2nd marks the one year anniversary of 6 Shreveport teenagers drowned while swimming, one mother losing three children on the same day. That is a pain I cannot fathom.
As we begin our third year of life without Maggie Lee, I have to be thankful for God’s sustaining grace, a loving family and the most unshakable friends in the world.
