I took a few days off to enjoy family and friends during Christmas, which was nice, yet proving a bit challenging to get back into the swing of things. My days were filled with adventure and excitement, from roasting hot dogs in the snow to rescuing a teddy bear being flushed down the toilet. It continued to include watching the Grinch for the tenth time in a row and nursing sick children for days….somehow, I kept going… And finally, among my most difficult tasks was dodging and diverting the questions regarding the authenticity of the tooth fairy and Santa Claus…But most importantly I prevailed! But now it’s time to start the New Year…
Although I haven’t told you lately, I have been thinking about you; all of my new followers and those who have been with me from the start along this difficult journey. We are all here for a reason, whether it is to connect, share, or find that little piece of hope that you have been longing for. I’m grateful for you all.
With the end of a year coming and a new one beginning, it can be a difficult time for many. Six years ago, I felt the despair and hopelessness as the first New Year came around after Lydia died. Seeing the New Year terrified me, not wanting time to move on as for me, my life had stopped five months earlier. It’s so very painful. So those new in your grief and those who have been here for a while, stuck or moving forward, we are in this together.
I’m here to tell you, it’s not the end and you WILL make it through. Just believe…
