You know how some weeks or months are just way harder than others? Life is funny that way. A few weeks ago I was feeling completely on top of the world, and the weeks proceeding it have been some of the hardest times of my life. Maybe I am lucky to not have so many horrible things happen all at once to me before this whirlwind of suck....or maybe I just feel it is so awful because I am in the thick of it. I think that saying about hindsight being 20/20 is true...you have time to distance yourself from the pain, heartache, loss, fear, and letdown in order to gain clarity.
It has been hard to post anything even remotely uplifting on this blog, and so I took a little bit of a break as to not subject all of you to my absolute lack of joy...because, let's face it.... that's no fun!
These are photos of some of the things that have helped me through this time...and trust me, it has been a rough ride. It would be a shame to allow rough circumstances and events around me to completely bring me down. As hard as it may be, finding the silver lining is what keeps us going...
