So today was/is? (I have a hard enough time with grammar let alone adding a sticky situation into the mix) my anniversary.
When I first left California and filed for divorce I knew I had a tough road ahead of me. After I got through the fog and craziness of those first few months I knew that certain days were still just going to be hard, i.e. holidays, when Brooke was gone and other dates like my anniversary. That was over 9 months ago now and I actually don’t feel sad at all today (added bonus is that post race high sticks around for a while for me;).
If anything, I feel a lot of gratitude today.
-To be living in Utah, with my family and people I have known for decades. To be living in my parents’ basement where I feel loved and for the help they offer me and Brooke on a daily basis.
-For Brooke and the light she is in my world.
-To know what I know now (and not 20 years down the road) and to have zero regrets about my decisions.
-For my faith and prayer.
-For my incredible internet bffs that have supported me so much during this time with love, comments and emails that have really meant the world to me. Who knew that writing a blog about candy and running shoes would bring me these amazing friendships?!?
So thanks. Thanks for helping me get through this rough patch and if you ever need my help/love/support, I am just one email away:)
