NEED TO REMEMBER
Back in September I attended an event. There were some strong opinions regarding not sharing personal things on your blog. While I certainly appreciate the points that were made, I've pondered this for over a month now. Anyway, a year ago I made a tough decision to share a very difficult personal thing in my life. I knew it was a touchy thing to do, but I have always been open and heck, it's my blog. I continue to receive emails weekly from moms thanking me and sharing their own secret pain. Secret, because we are only supposed to talk about the rainbows, never the rain, even with the closest people in their lives? I tried that earlier today, only blogging about the outward pretty things of life. Then I felt like crap. I lost my son a year ago to a horrible drug overdose and I just can't sweep it under the rug, no matter how beautiful the rug might be. I had so many incredible friends who walked beside us through this tragedy and I am missing all of them so much right now. They let me laugh AND cry. What an amazing gift. Love you all extra much today.
