    there are days I need to stop myself from sinking...
    I begin to disappear, immersing into the anguish that has transpired, like a tepid bath that keeps drawing one near. Bracing myself from the brevity of it all as I balance on this high wire.

    Maybe the date has nothing to do with things....
    Or maybe it does? My father died 17 years ago on my husband and his brothers birthdays, he would have been 71 in March. I often wondered of all the dates in a year, why that date. Was it because he knew my husband would step in where he left off?
    To say my father was strict when I grew up would speak mildly of those teen years. I tested all the boundaries,...

    I chose the month of January to begin a grateful journal. To recognize the good that surrounds me, even on the toughest of days. I plan to continue beyond the 31 days, but this was my beginning to a more grateful 2015
