Sipping my coffee and continuing in a very reflective vein this morning, this after chasing my grandpuppy around to retrieve my sock, threatening to end one dogs life that decided to attack my pant leg and try to convince another to head outside in the rain. Oh the things in life that make you laugh and realize some things never change.
Then there are the things that have changed significantly. I look back on my blog history and last year there is 6 months missing. I remember where I was a year ago at this time. It wasn’t a quick trip or one single event that lead to what felt like the unraveling of my world. I can almost taste that place, feel it and hear the chaos. Yet in the next moment I remember how this new journey began. I remember the truth spoken to the lies that began to tear down walls. I remember the glimmer of hope that what did not manage to kill me could possibly make me stronger! It has not been easy nor without set back. Yet for the set backs there have been amazing strides forward. There has been freedom and victory. So much has changed and even though a few things remain the same, I am not the person I was last year at this time. You didn’t know me then. I didn’t pen my words to print. I was beginning a slow ascent back into the world but with extreme caution. This year it is different. It has been a little rough because of things I can not control but none the less I am not the same girl I was. So for today I will continue my year in review, I will chase this silly dog yet again as he runs pass me with yet another sock. I will brave the rain and fight the dog. I will journey on and only look back to glean that which will make me stronger. 2013 here I come.
