So we come to the end of another blog. This one was focused on each of us looking toward our horizon. As I read back on week 1 I realized what I set to do I have accomplished. I worked toward a better me. Added and deleted things as needed and was always in control of my life. Through it all I have kept my circle small and family at the center of it all. Even though I filed for divorce and divorce was finalized I never broke down. I took each bump in the road and learned from it. This blog was about growth. The biggest growth I had this year was the growth of my heart. I learned to love again and to accept someone loving me. I was blessed that even though one chapter closed the next one still included those I hold dear to me. A piece of paper didn’t make us family. Years of love, road trips, shopping trips, crying fest, and sisterhood made us family. The fact that family is not always blood was proven this year. The fact that you can’t help who you fall in love with. The fact that as we get older we get wiser. And the fact that the HORIZON IS WHAT WE MAKE IT. Well in my year long journey I believe I just began to reach my horizon and I will continue to grow, love and learn about life all because of my FAMILY. Burn rubber not your Soul. When you feel like you’re falling reach your arm out because they will be there. And at the end of the day give back to those that can’t give. That in itself is the biggest reward. Feeling Blessed!
It was shocking and breathtaking to see how far I’ve come since last year. Some things haven’t changed but the ones that have make this journey amazing and my horizon reachable. Here’s to the past molding me for my future.
Not really knowing how to feel or what to feel this week. It was easier said then done. When you have to stand in front of a priest and said for better or worst; you never image the worst being you and him at different tables saying it just didn’t work out. Everything leading up to this day has been a moment to remember, to ponder and to learn from. I took it like a champ and took some time away from the world to regroup, relax and yes let go. Ready for the next chapter of my life.
Medical issues were the theme of the week. My daughter got put to the pain test and came out like a champ. Baby boy back in uniform and this mom is all smiles. Ended the week with my first real date with someone I actually enjoyed every minute with. We will just call him man and I’m the woman. Glad my week rounded out great.
Sunday family fun. Our family is very unique in every way. Planning a party for someone that doesn’t show up but only our family could party on without the guest of honor. My boys stealed the show.
Most friendship I have are few and far between. I cherish those that cherish me. For those that continues to have my back I am truly blessed. All things worth having are worth working and fighting for.
