So, I started this journey in August. I have to rebuild a life. I have to identify who I am and where I am going. I thought blogging would help me get going – in the right direction. I shared this with my daughters and sons. “Great mom!” The next thing I know, my daughter is blogging. She is creative, hilarious, spontaneous and full of life. Her blogs reflect all of that. Damn competition! Just kidding. Reading her blog, I realize I can still laugh, I can visit a memory without tears, I can be inspired. I realize I am hurt, not dead. I realize I can probably do anything I want – if I work at it. I realize children are a gift, one I really need right now. I realize my children are blessed and talented, each in their own field. I realize the world is a better place with them in it. I realize I have left a little legacy. I realize my “tomorrows” are not the ones I have chosen, but they can be great. I realize taking a small part of my day to put words on paper, helps to empty my soul of the heaviness.
I realize “skipper” of “skipper and kenny” is my daughter and she has just challenged me to a “blog-off”!
Let the journey and the challenge begin!!!!!
