The last 2 years have been a nightmare.
2012 speaks for itself.
2013 we were still dealing with all the firsts without Tin Man. Most of those firsts we were still pretty numb and not feeling everything. So now we're going through everything again, but this time we're feeling all of the pain of not having him here with us.
So here's to 2014. We sat down and decided that we are going to make this our year. The last 2 years we've spent writing the chapters on grief. Now we want to write the chapters on how to live after grief.
We will always have the grief with us, but we want to push through it and stop letting it control what we do.
I know this is most likely easier said than done, but that goes for most of life.
