Today I went for a walk. As I walked around the well manicured neighborhood which we moved into this summer, I thought about all the positive things that have been happening and all the things I have to look forward to. But over the past few weeks I have realized that something is missing, my blog. It’s been almost 9 months since I posted here and that happened for a myriad of reasons. So much changed for me last year, most great but the one that was negative threw me so far off track. Losing my dad will probably be the worst thing that ever happens to me for a very very long time. It’s something I think about every day and still cry about weekly. It’s awful. However from that experience my relationship with my brothers and mom have grown to be indestructible. I also found an even deeper love and appreciation for my husband who lost his own father 15 years ago. He knows exactly what I am going through and has been an incredible shoulder. I do not know where I would be without him and his silent hugs and words of wisdom.
Anyway, I have been pretty mentally off track ever since. In the past month we had the one year anniversary of his passing, and celebrated his life by participating in our second annual diabetes walk in Boston.
GO TEAL PAUL!
Since the walk, and even a little before that I started to realize just how much I missed blogging. I missed reflecting on my days/decisions, and sharing all my yummy recipes and cooking tips. I forgot how important it is to savor the moments you have and everything life has to offer. I am excited to get back into the blogging world and back into the routines that made me so happy in the past. I’m ready to once again savor life’s flavors! 🙂
