The Irony of it all

APRIL 7, 2010
Today was rather rough.  I am unsure why.  Tomorrow is a day I wish I could skip every day for the rest of my life.  April 8 just makes me cringe.  I never thought I would be sitting here blogging about such great loss.  
I am no expert at this whole loss thing, but I feel I could be the President of any club related to the such topic.  I saw more loss in two years than I ever expected to see.  I didn't even think a good friend, father, client, and a dog would all vanish out of my life all in the matter of six months.  To continue on with the theme I lost my job, "friends" and every little ounce of happiness I had.   
I don't want a pity party or anyone to tell me to stay strong. I have heard that more times than the times I got in trouble as a kid.  Just know people do need someone to talk to and they don't want to hear that you are having the worst day of your life.  
Saying you had the worst day of your life because you woke up late and your boss yelled at you is not even close to what some people have experienced.  And if that is your worst day ever consider yourself lucky.  Because if all I had to bitch about was that I broke a nail and couldn't find anything to wear, I would consider myself lucky.  
Next time you see someone down, don't let them go unloved.  Give them a hug and if you are in a hurry or busy tell them to text you and you can talk that way.  It's something they need.  
Remember to count your blessings and love your parents.  I know sometimes it is hard to, but remember they gave you life, and they sure can take you out of this world.  There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about lucky I am to have my mom left.  


Daddy's hands, soft and kind when I was cryin' / Daddy's hands, hard as steel when I done wrong. / Daddy's hands weren't always gentle but I've come to understand, There was always love in daddy's hands.

dont let anyone tell you that the
waves wont come and wash you away
everytime you hear a song or smell
that certain smell.just know that this separation is only for a while
and remember they stand on heavens
balcony to watch over us.

We have been through a lot--no doubt about that for sure! But I look at it this way now--we are so thankful that we had them in our lives, if only for a short time. The ones we lost have made us what we are today and no one can take that away from us. I love you and Aaron with all my heart and I wish that I could take that pain away but as Mikal's mom says "they are standing on heaven's balcony to watch over us." We have the best angels taking care of us from above.
