Thank you all so much for your words of encouragement through comments or emails or Facebook messages. I appreciate the time you all took to share your heart with me. (although, the incessant, ignorant and, of course, anonymous commenter I could have done without, but that’s okay, that’s why I moderate my comments now.)
I know that news like that can shake you up. It still shakes me to my core, I’m still shocked by all that is happening, even though I’ve been living it minute by minute since last year. But it’s okay. I’m okay. We are all okay. I promise you.
I’m still the same person.
I still can’t wait to check on them before I head to bed.
I still love graham crackers.
I’m still grateful for every breath I take.
I’m still grieving the loss of our precious boys. (five years next week. That’s difficult for me to handle right now.)
I still eat as if it were my job. (quickly and with great focus.)
I still eat ice cream every night. (I did give that up for awhile but I needed it back.) (so it’s back) (forever)
I’m still grateful for every person that hires me to photograph their family.
(always will be.)
I still laugh and joke. (how could I not?)
I still love Steel Magnolias and Brad Pitt.
I’m still grateful for all of you who check in and leave comments and share how you’ve been reading for awhile. (that’s one of my favorite things. This is truth.)
I still plan to be here. Writing. Sharing. Like always.
