Finding Joy in the “Little Things”

Happy 2018!

It is truly unbelievable that another year has come and gone. I can honestly say that 2017 was an amazing year for my son and I. We are finding our joy in life again. Not every day is a great day, but we have learned to find something great in every day.

I began this journey almost three years ago. I started blogging not long after. My problem was that I would start a new post, second guess myself, and then delete it, before it was ever published. Ahh, the joys of anxiety.

I originally started this blog as an “outlet” to express my grief journey. I also had hopes that maybe I could help someone realize that they are not alone in how they feel, and to show them that there is hope for a future. I want people to understand that you don’t have to be “stuck” in the never-ending cycle of loss. There is hope for a future. A new life, new experiences, new joys to be found. My life is not perfect now. But I have found a new happy. My daily prayer is that everyone out there who is drowning in grief, to find happiness also. We all know that nothing will ever be the same, but we must live for our loved ones. We carry them with us always.

My hope, for the future of this blog, is to help others. A little more about life, a little less sadness. So lets see what adventures 2018 has in store for us!
