|Night out with Tom and Bee! August 2012|
You’ve been my friend.
You've thought of me and Dani as we've tumbled through these last few years. You've even read my stuff and written back.
You've sent text messages, Facebook messages, and voicemail messages. You've said prayers, bought books, and mailed Red Lobster gift cards! You've invited us to picnics, parties, and small groups. You've written to us, cried with us, and laughed for us when we forgot how.
In short, you refused to let us sink.
It's no secret that the last few years have been challenging for Dani and me. I've documented my various problems quite publicly, so there's a good chance you have an impression - good or bad.
But about 13 months ago I stopped blogging regularly and kinda fell off the grid. I was changing in ways I didn’t understand, and I wasn’t sure what that meant for my blog. I only knew I wasn’t angry anymore.
A lot has changed - both internally and externally - since then. I’ve settled my major questions, I’ve let go of my major resentments, I’ve identified a personal sense of life purpose, and I’ve started action stepping in that direction.
Last month someone asked if I was still working toward nursing school. I'm not. Yesterday someone asked if I was still working construction. I'm not! And today someone asked if I still weighed 210 pounds. I don't!
Ok, nobody asked about my weight, but still... :)
Anyway, in case you're interested, tomorrow I'll post a rapid-fire run-through of 7 the top 14 moments of the last 12 months.
How has life been for you since October 2011?
