When I started this blog, a little over a year ago, my goal was to look at “the lighter side of widowhood.” Ha! Talk about an epic fail. For three years, since my husband’s death, I have done a lot of crying and not enough laughing. The events of days like today – another unbelievable atrocity – certainly don’t help stop the tears – but enough with the excuses …. Maybe events like those that happened today should be a rallying cry not to take life for granted; not to waste the precious time we have on this earth. WTF???? You would think I would have learned that lesson on October 17, 2011.
Anyway, I am wiping my eyes, putting on my big girl panties, and snapping out of it. Time to look to the light … no, not “go into the light” … It’s time I “lightened” up (wow, talk about overworking an analogy). It’s a new year … watch out.
