Compliments of the Season to all my family and blogging friends!
2013 has already been a year of great change for us. After much deliberation, Stacey and I have made the decision to move in with my brother Rob until I'm on my feet and then we will look for a new home and yet another fresh start. It wasn't an easy decision to make, but I think it's best for us.
I have started counseling and am under my doctor's care. It feels as though a tornado has ripped through my life, wreaking havoc as it's passed. With my emotions, my stability, my home. I am moving onward, and upward, with help. Although the physical damage caused by this tornado is pretty simple to repair, I know the emotional upheaval will take time. I have, at the advice of a friend, decided to set myself daily goals and "pat myself on the back" once achieved - one day at a time.
I will get there. WE will get there.
I have been blessed with amazing support from people both near and far - Rob, Lesley, Stacey and Brad have been phenomenal in helping me pack up my precious belongings and move into a beautiful new home. Close to work, and where peace reigns. For these things I am eternally grateful.
There IS light at the end of the tunnel. I am slowly learning to cope with my anger, and try and keep my dignity. It's not always easy, but I am trying.
They say there is a reason for everything. I guess the reason will become clear with time, but for now, I will move forward slowly. No emotional decisions and no hurry.
Just one day at a time.
