I'm starting over.
Since I was absolutely terrible about keeping up with the old blog, I've decided to try a different approach. I whined, I complained, I cried, I apologized... a lot, actually, but I very rarely talked about the things in my life that make me happy. And there are a lot!
I've said before that I am the luckiest unlucky girl there is, but I think I end up talking about what makes me unlucky rather than what makes me lucky, which is ridiculous and not even the slightest bit helpful to healing. So my initial blogging journey through grief is archived and put away, hopefully to be able to look back on and say "whoa, I've come a long, long way since then" and I'm starting fresh... I'm going to blog about something that I'm thankful for. I'd say every day, but let's be real- if you know me, you know that it's more likely I'll cheer for Duke than post a blog every day (i.e.- not even the tee tiniest bit likely. Sorry.)
23 months to the day that JT was killed in Afghanistan and the beginning of the month that asks us to take just one day to remember to be thankful seems like a heck of time to take this on, don't you think?
So... here goes!
