So much happens in a year. I want to play catch up. I want to fill in the blanks but I can’t do that. \
There is too much. So instead.
I will go on from here and pretend that the time warp didn’t happen.
I will go on and pretend that my heart has not broken over and over and I’ve haven't had to find a way to keep on moving through the pain and sorrow.
I will go on and pretend that I haven’t battled grief, disbelief, pain, impatience and all the rest.
I will go on and be the wiser, stronger person that I have become.
I will go on and be joyful because of all the beauty that my life holds.
Do I have regrets? Absolutely
Do I miss the days before? At times
Was there a way through the storm that lasted for so long? Yes and maybe I’ll have the right words someday to express how I made it through.
But not today. Today I’m finding my way to a new beginning
So welcome to my life. I hope that we can get to know each other.
I want to share the things that make up our days. Come on in and join me for a visit.
Soon it will be spring again and we can enjoy the sunset from the front porch. Until then I’ll be sipping hot tea and working inside where it is warm.
