Life seems more normal this week. Maybe because the sun is shining, maybe because it’s been more than a month, maybe because I have a squadron of friends praying for me, the twinges of grief seem further and further apart. Am I sad sometimes? Yes, definitely. Do I miss them? Absolutely. But do I have a life to live? Yeah, and I am grateful that the living is getting easier.
I am so looking forward to this summer. I am yearning for these long, beautiful summer nights to be spent without the specter of an early morning hanging over me. I am eager to buy some patio furniture so I can spend some lazy summer mornings reading on my patio. I’m ready for my vacations. I’m ready for some unscheduled time… and at this point in the year, my past blogs will attest, that’s normal.
