Small Town Coroner
Despite my greatest loses in my life tonight I cling tightly to God. I have loved someone deeply and with all my heart. God has brought be so far from my first diary entry almost a year ago. I have not written everynight but I have let my mind wander to the pages in this hardbound black leather book. My wife, my daughter, so far gone. Endless nights of nightmares, images, lonilness, tears, have brought me to the point where the diary and God have changed me. God has given me Midnight, friends who care, and people who have visited through college. I have picked up new hobbies, attitudes, and faith. I do still miss my wife and daughter but if I continued to live life as I had I was more dead than they were. I was living just to get a day closer to dying. It pains me to see how much time I've wasted and how much I cannot get back. Midnight has become my constant companion. We have begun to take our trips to the beach again he swims out about 10 feet or so now. He's a changed dog. He still loves people food but he isn't the scared, fearful dog he once was. He as I have has learned that we can start again. Just like Jesus once said we are now born again.
