As much as I love words, sometimes it feels like there aren’t any to express the deepest of my emotions. I’ve been away from this blog of mine so much in the last year. Today I decided to come back again. Today would have been my mom’s seventy-first birthday, but she never made it out of her fifties. I’ve come a long way since last year at this time, so I didn’t expect the tears to be lurking just under the surface today. While my husband and daughter made dinner, I went upstairs and got on the yoga mat. I’ll be honest, I mostly just laid there and let myself feel the sadness that I didn’t want to feel. But I know she would be proud of how far I’ve come and the life choices I’ve made. If I were still a little girl, I would have cleaned my room or made her something. So I decided to tidy up my virtual room by remaking my website today. I’m making something else, too, but I’ll reveal that next time.
