A tree grows in White House…

duncan's tree

It’s had to believe that it’s been two years since we planted Duncan’s tree.

I think the person who coined the phrase “time heals all wounds” is an idiot.

But I must admit….time has a way of softening the harsh edges of grief, of blurring the sharp pain of loss.

Time passes, and aches lessen, and trees – and children – grow.

And it is a beautiful thing.

Love the pictures Monica. And I am so glad that both Duncan's tree, and your children are growing strong. You and your family are often in my thoughts.

I don't comment often (ever?) but I wanted to say I love reading your blog.

This post made me think of a quote I wanted to share with you:

"It has been said, 'Time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone."
