Well, here I am. I realize that I may be writing this just for me to read. But in case someone stumbles upon this blog (like you), I will do my best to provide tidbits that inspire, inform, or just make you smile.
Why blog now? Well, I have talked about starting a blog for some years now. My husband, my own cheerleading squad captain, always told me that I should do it. In his eyes, there was nothing I could not do (except maybe for cooking–more on that in later posts). As is typical in life, things are not always on our terms or timeline. After 20 years of looking over to kiss my Honey before getting out of bed, I lost him earlier this year. It was pure bliss to wake up next to this man every day and know that he loved me–unconditionally and unwavering. Our teenage son lost a partner in crime (“don’t tell Mami”), a teacher, and a friend. As our son has grown these past few months, I see more of his father in him every day.
So, after almost 8 months of watching life through a hazy film separating me from the world, I am peeking through and looking for the sun–seeking its light and its warmth. With this post, I am dipping my toe in the sunshine.
