There will always be reminders of Krabbe and its effects on Tori in the least expected places.
The other night, for instance, on The Good Doctor, they had a patient who was unable to smile because her cranial nerves were not working properly.
Just like Krabbe.
This is just one example, of course. These situations always catch us by surprise, and it’s hard to believe that even just four years ago something like this wouldn’t have phased us. We would have enjoyed the episode of the show but it wouldn’t have made us think about anything else.
When times like this happen, we have a choice: focus on what Krabbe stole from her – and us – with sadness, or focus on all that Heaven restored to her with joy.
And, as always, we choose joy.
Her smile was amazing, even though we only saw it for five months. I think we will appreciate her brothers’ smiles far more because of this. Each smile, each expression…such joy.
We remember her smile with such love and eagerly await seeing it again soon – but not yet ❤️
