A New Day

Monday, May 10, 2010
A new week. A new day. Thank God. Looking ahead over the rest of this year is so overwhelming. There are so many "firsts" we have to get through. Luckily, I just got through one of them. I have two more this month. One next month. One in July. The fall months have very special and exciting milestones, but difficult all the same. And then of course, the holidays. So much for just saying, "I wish I could fast forward to next month" because each "next month" holds something we've got to get through and deal with.

For the record, I'm doing a bit better than this blog probably makes it seem. When I'm hit with one of those moments of weakness, I tend to want to write it out. When everything is going ok, I don't really feel the need to write; thus, more sad posts than positive. Yesterday was miserable to say the least. However, I really want to thank those few folks that took the time to remember me, to send me a little note just saying we're thinking of you. I needed that yesterday and I am so grateful to each of you for not being scared to acknowledge me. It meant a lot.

Luckily, my new Sookie Stackhouse book arrived Saturday morning. So I had plenty of escapism for Sunday, and Shan even sprung for Chinese food. LOL


  1. Thought about you this weekend. You are sounding better in your posts on Face Book. Think this writing is very good for you. Keep up the good work!!!!!

  2. I was a lot like you- I used my blog when I was feeling at my worst- and often ignored it when I was doing ok...
    We understand, we're here to listen :)

  3. I'm still thinking about you! The firsts are very hard. I am still experiencing them myself. You are doing amazing!

  4. I feel the same way about doing better than I sound as I tend to mostly write on the blah down days and the horrible awful days. It is so comforting to get the negative thoughts out though and to know that the majority of those that read can relate or are truly interested and willing/wanting to help make my days a bit brighter.

    Maybe I need to start posting happier thoughts and it will force me to be more positive on a daily basis? Maybe?!


  5. Kerry it is all new for you and time will pass and it will get better and now look Ashley is expecting again. It too will happen for you too and I know it will all go well soon you will have your own little one to take home. Hang in there we are all here to listen to you and give you all are great insights, thoughts, and prayers. Mothers day was hard for me too My first MDay without my Mom. I got through it went to work to keep busy. Take care

  6. Still thinking about you every day Kerry. You're so strong, even if you may not feel so strong at times. You're awesome. Always in my thoughts.
