Surviving Life's Lessons

November 11, 2012

My awakening . . .

At times when the house is quiet I reflect on how I got to this particular day in my life. So many days seemed endlessly filled is pain and grief. Now I am beginning to let go of those emotions, realizing that Dave’s life wasn’t in my hands, he was in God’s hands all along. What is left in store for my family is unknown but knowing that when it is my time Dave will be there with open arms to welcome me Home too. For now I must embrace what is now my “new” life with my daughters and our families. You feel like a child at times, afraid of the unknown future, fear of forever being alone, fear of not being accepted.  For me, the fear that I’m raising my girls the right way, the way Dave and I discussed how we would raise them. So while I sit in this silence, pensive and weary from the past several months all I can say is please bare with me. Every day brings a new challenge that I must do on my own. Some days I don’t even want to get out of bed. This, too, shall pass I’m told. I have to hold onto my faith and what I was raised believing and do the unthinkable. I must lay all of my trust in God’s hands and say “I trust you will make the best deciions for my life”


  1. Howdy! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after going through many of the articles I realized it’s new to me. Anyhow, I’m certainly pleased I came across it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back frequently!
