I don't really have an explanation for this post.  I have been away from blogging for quite some time.....for various reasons.  One big reason has to do with it has seemed each time I post information about certain people in my life, not to long after they are gone.  I think I have a little post traumatic stress from blogging.  Yet, don't think there is a day that I don't think about writing.  Truth is, I need it.  My words may not make sense to anyone else but the action of placing the thoughts in my head to paper help settle my thoughts.

That said, I am not prepared to do a recap of the last 6-9 months.  I just want to start from here.  I purchased a new laptop for just this reason...blogging.  The desktop computer is in the basement.  I like to write while in bed during this last hour of the day, the kids are all in bed and the house is quite before I rest my head on the pillow.

So, here we go...
Workout this evening...

Body Pump

Feels so good to move.
Physical movement is needed in my daily life more than ever.  It is my drug of choice.  I am afraid if I miss even a day of it, I may have a mental break (that is not an exaggeration).  Moving forward sometimes comes as just moving, afraid to slow down and let what is behind to catch up.  Movement is healing.  I am going to be doing lots of moving the next little while.

Realizing I am not the only one with struggles, I want you to know, you are not alone.  This journey is shared.  Find someone, tell someone, trust someone with your burden.  Talk to me.  Together we are strong.

Love you my friend and I want you to know you are always in my thoughts and prayers....I love that you write and express yourself so openly...you are the voice that I cannot so openly express, if that makes sense...stay strong and keep that voice going you are making a difference for many people me included.
