Where have you been?
Hi all. I’ve been here. Well, more accurately all over the place. I’ve been doing my best to be positive and stay focused on my family and having good days. I’m happy to say, it’s worked pretty well!
I have been staying busy. Working with Hope, doing some writing, enjoying my family, and seeing a new doctor to try and overcome some more of the PTSD demons.
Hope continues to come along. She does pretty well in just about every situation with the exception of one. That consistent pain she becomes happens every Sunday morning at church. Now, she doesn’t do it in Bible study. Yep, you guessed it, she does it during worship. Acts like a total moron lol. Hopefully we’ll be able to figure it out soon because I actually really enjoy service at church.
I’ve been given an opportunity to write for another online blog. Spartan Blog, and its editor Carrie Adams responded to a message I sent via their facebook fan page (find it here) about losing Riley in Afghanistan in September of 2012. I was offered to write a few articles for their blog and a childhood dream was realized. I am published! Here’s the first article and the race follow up article.
My family and I had a great Christmas together this year. The kids lost in the magic of Santa and we were able to see most of those who we wanted to and were within driving distance.
So, I’m hopeful for 2013 and what it has in store. Of course lots of work building Paws up and working with my Hope, my family, and my doctor to be healthier and happier. I am looking forward to this year for lots of reasons. Seems I just feel like this is going to be a great year.
