It's a New Day

It's been forever (or so it seems) since I've last blogged. I guess I've had a case of writer's block. Well first off, Happy New Year and all that jazz! I hope you had a nice and safe holiday. This was my first Christmas & New Year without my son. I was dreading the holiday season since November. I didn't think I would be able to handle the holidays. For Christmas the only thing I wanted was to wake up and be happy...instead of crying and feeling sad all day. Thankfully, my Christmas day was a peaceful one. The days leading up to New Years Eve seemed to be harder for me than anticipating the holidays. I made it through it all though & for that I'm grateful.

I always say that life is such a precious gift. Tomorrow is never promised so it's important to tell those you care for how you feel. I did something I usually don't do and that was send out Christmas cards to a few close family and friends. I wanted to make a point to tell them just how much they mean to me..not just around the holidays. But everyday.

Someone who didn't know my son passed away just asked me how he was doing....I hate breaking that type of news to people and seeing the sorrow and tears in their eyes. It brings back the painful memories that seem like they just occurred yesterday. I can honestly say I'm ready to take this new year and do great things with it. Each day is a new day to make new memories. I'm taking last years memories with me, the good and the bad. Each one has helped humble me and make me a more grateful person. Enjoy your weekend folks..and as always, thanks for reading.

PS: Smile! It's contagious :)
