I cannot believe that it has been a year already!!!

I often think about you and especially Gage, it isn't easy for sure. I don't know that time makes it any easier, but perhaps a bit less painful.

You're doing a good job with your son.

I can't imagine. I am sure you are doing the best you can, and all you can. That is a lot.

Not sure what to say, but that I'm thinking about you... take care, do what you can, take time to smell the roses when you find them.

The first year was the hardest imho. Second year will have its moments as well, still painful, but not as frequent it seemed. It is the most demanding thing a parent can do I believe. Take consolation in the fact you have a son. I have 2 daughters (along with sons)and I still feel like I was clueless trying to meet the needs only a mother can.
Grief is a brutal experience. No one capable of love escapes it. No words ease the hurt.. I'm 11 years removed from the loss of my wife, and time truly is the only thing that dulls the pain.

Are there any female family members, anywhere nearby, that you are close with? I ask because, perhaps, a little bit of time with them now and then, an give Gage some of the influence and insights that a mom/woman can give. Just a thought.

Being a single parent, whatever the reason, is a challenge, but when a parent has passed on, its all the more challenging I'm sure.

Praying for you and your son. I know that this has been hard on both of you. My wife lost her dad when she was 7. I think in times like these if folks just try to do the best that they can, it's all that can be done. I think that in time your son will come to understand that. My wife's mother struggled financially and emotionally with 3 young children, from what I understand they went through some tough times, but my wife looks back on it and knows that her mother loved them. I am not intending to give unsolicited advice, but then again I find myself doing that at times, so disregard what I say if not applicable. Maybe a youth sport, organization like 4H or FFA, or church youth group would be an opportunity for your son to be around other children his age, and also have other positive adults in addition to you in his life.

Every time I see a post you have made I think about you and wonder how you two are doing. How is Gage's arm doing? Hope he has healed up and no problems.

You had said you had a big family so I hope that you both get to spend some time with them and maybe Gage has a "favorite" aunt or adult female cousin he can get some of the needed "female influence" from.
