I shared #mitchellsjourney with a leadership group today in Nashville. It was a powerful hour and a half that pointed to the treasure of family and living a life of significance. While waiting at the airport, this balloon found its way down the large corridor and drifted by me. It's words spoke the feelings of my heart. In my mind and heart I said, "I miss you too, son."

Though I long to see my little boy, I am at peace today. It's a strange thing to hurt and heal at the same time. Such is the journey of grief ... love and loss, peace and pain ... everything is bundled as one.
