I’m slowly making my way back…to this blog, and to life itself. It is difficult to just go back to “normal”, whatever that was anyway.
We laid my dad to rest this past Saturday. It was a rough day for all of us, and I am glad it is behind us. Life must go on, I know that, but I’m still sad and I’m still dealing with so many emotions. I miss my dad so much. My focus has now shifted to my mom, though, and even though she doesn’t need to be “taken care of”, so to speak, I feel that I have to take care of her. She is here with us this week, but it is just a matter of days until she has to go home alone. My heart aches for her.
I thank you all again for all of your support over the past weeks. It really meant a lot to me. I am going to do my best to reply to everyone individually, but until I do, please accept my sincere gratitude for all of your kind words. So many of you reached out to me and shared similar stories, and as much as I hate for anyone else to go through what I did, it helped me to know that there are people out there that understand and knew how I felt.
It is hard for me not to feel sad and frustrated all the time. Sure, I have moments of happiness, but deep down I just feel sad. I’m making it a point, though, to try to remain positive and make the best out of the days ahead. That is what my dad would have wanted. 2011 has been a rough year for me so far, and if I don’t focus on the positives in my life, I will drive myself crazy.
So here I am. Back to blogging. I feel so out of touch and I’m looking forward to catching up with everyone and reconnecting with my bloggy buddies. I have some fun giveaways coming up in the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned for those. In the meantime…have a great day! Or better yet, make it a great day!
