Moving Ahead

Posted on March 16, 2008 @ 7:51 pm

I have closed a chapter in my life and I am finally ready to start a new one. About seven months ago, my husband and young son were killed in an automobile accident, and I have spent these past seven months in a bit of a fog. I am now coming out of that and am getting ready to move on with my life.

If I had it my way, I would spend the rest of my life grieving my loss, but I still have two little boys who need me to be their mom. So, today, I will go out and look at property for sale. I figure if we are going to try and be strong and make a fresh start, then we need to do it with new and fresh surroundings.

I decided to sell the house and buy something new. Something that would not be a constant reminder of all that we had lost, but would, instead, be a place for healing and rebuilding of the relationships that we still do have. I am so thankful and blessed to still be the mom of these two wonderfully crazy little boys and I want to live up to every expectation that they have of me. We have survived this far and, because of this, I know we will be okay.
