Reflections on 2013

Sharing is caring!

It’s hard to believe that 2013 is about to come to a close. There have been lots of good things – watching Riley grow more, reuniting with my in-laws and other family, plus a few other things. But it’s hard one major down – losing my mom in May. This has been the hardest year I have ever had to go through. If you have ever lost someone close to you, I’m sure you understand. Losing your best friend and mother – honestly, it just plain sucks. My heart has been broken since that day. There are days that go by that I don’t cry… but I still cry my eyes out at least once a week. I really don’t know how my husband has dealt with the blubbering mess that I am when I cry. 😉

I hope that this new year will help me. I hope that a new year will help me have something to look forward to. Of course I still have lots of “firsts” to experience as far as grief goes… the first birthday of Riley’s without my mom here, my mom’s first birthday without her here, and the first “anniversary” (is that even what you call it?) of her death. I am not looking forward to those things, at all, really. But hopefully finally getting through them will help me.

I sure hope 2014 brings great things to you, my readers. I’m sorry this post is a pretty depressing one. But I needed to write it. I’m excited about what 2014 will bring for my blog and for all of you. I hope you all have a happy new year. <3
