"you will never heal completely,... but you will learn to live again; even with a broken heart"...... ...so, i keep trying to hold onto my memories and a love that even death cannot erase. that's it.. i said it... it's something i can't fix... i can't make better. i opened up, i expressed it.. and that is huge for me..
My girls have been so sweet....i am truly blessed, ... we got thru all the holidays.. Thanksgiving.. was at my house this year.. we cooked, baked and shopped the entire weekend. I needed the laughter... the breath of fresh air that comes so naturally with twenty somethings..
after dinner, we joined the thousands of atlanta shoppers ...it was so much fun spending the entire weekend with these sweeties... later we all stopped by my house for coffee and dessert and back out again... we tag teamed the sales... cellphones were going off constantly during the manic super sales... i ticked off half my list that evening.. xoxo the rest was online shopping!
Friday afternoon Erin "my youngest" and i hit up every tree farm in atlanta .. in search of the perfect Christmas Tree... (she informed me i was too picky).. lol... nah... i just knew when i had found the tree.. it felt right.. the smell.. oh gosh.. the smell of a Christmas tree is so incredibly nostalgic.. i can close my eyes and vividly remember my childhood Christmases; just by the smell of a Christmas tree.
I had scheduled to have a new roof installed after Thanksgiving... due to rescheduling by the contractor twice .. it was installed Christmas week.. things never go as planned.. ever!!!! lol
fast forward to Valentines Day..
and that brings us to present time... one step at a time... one day at a time.. reminding myself of the present, and never ever forgetting the past.
till next time
