It’s been 90 days, give or take a few. Ninety days since he has seen her gorgeous face or caressed her dainty hand or kissed her rosy cheek. And as Rory Feek approached the three-month anniversary of his wife Joey’s death on June 3, Rory couldn’t help but put what he was feeling down via his blog (www.thislifeilive.com.)
“Tomorrow, it will be three months since Joey passed away, and most days, I do pretty well,” he says in the June 3 post. “But some. The harder ones. I find myself reaching down and picking up that hurt – the pain of knowing that she is really gone – and trying to carry it on my shoulders. But I can’t. I have something else on my shoulders now. Someone else…”
That someone else is of course their dear daughter Indiana.
“Our little two-year old desperately needs her Papa here,” he writes. “Not there. In the present. Not the past. So again, I lay my burden down and let Him have it. And I trust that His plan is better than mine. And I know it is. Because I can see it unfolding right in front of me.”
