"There's so much you can hide behind a smile. But eventually everything you're runnimg from will catch up with you. A story of strength and happiness that she'll fight like Hell to keep."
"Everyone has inner demons. Some are better at hiding them. Can love alone conquer her demons?"
“It won’t help,” I insist, shaking my head. “There has to be something you can do.”“The only thing that would help is Matt being here,” I say. “Talking to him about Sophie and how much I love and miss him.”“So do that,” Mandy suggests. I raise my eyebrows at her. “He used to write you those sappy love letters, right?” I nod my head . “Well, maybe you can write him letters . Tell him all the things you would if he were here. It’ll be kind of like coming full circle. He wrote letters to you, so you write letters to him. It’ll be all symbolic and shit.”I laugh, despite myself , but I’m considering it. It sounds like a great idea. I can’t talk to Matt in person, so this is the next best thing. “I’ll give it a shot,” I tell her.She smiles at me. Standing up, she claps her hands. “Now, get that skinny ass out there and be the awesome mom I know you can be!”I give her a small smile and walk from the bathroom. I make my way into the living room. Sophie is sitting on the floor playing with blocks. I walk over and pick her up.“Mommy’s so proud of you, baby girl,” I say, surprising myself when I find that I really mean the words.

"It's said that only the good die young. And when those left behind must mourn their loss, love becomes the most important thing. Jaden is about to learn that the hard way."
