#Microblog Monday- A Good Year?

I did one of those facebook things where they do a photo wrap up of your year. You can edit the wording and photos but the default says something about 2014 being a great year.

I did edit a few of the photos but it never occurred to me to edit the actual wording. You know, the part about 2014 being a good year. Let me repeat,,, it never occurred to me to change the wording that I had a great year. This hasn't happened to me since before we lost our son, way back in 2010.

There have been so many terrible years recently. In those years I would never have imagined that there would be any more good ones. But this one was good,,, and that seems strange to me.

Deep in my grief, a grief I never thought would end, I couldn't have seen this day coming. And yet somehow it has. I am happy, and I had a good year.

I haven't forgotten of course. Forgotten how quickly life can take a turn into a very dark place. I think perhaps I am more appreciative of the good times because I have lived through the absolute worst life has to offer.

So thank you 2014 for not being another terrible year. I think after all I've been through I deserve it. 


  1. May 2015 be another great year for you and your family!

  2. This has given me hope and a reminder. Because we're right now in a crap time that feels never ending. But it will end. And then we'll be in a good year.

    And yes, I did edit it on FB to say, "it's been a crap year!"

  3. I hit a button before I was done. Sorry for the second comment.

    I'm glad you have that breathing space now. That you're celebrating tthe good times. And may there be many more of them in 2015.
