  1. Hi, I’m finally here. Internet connections junk going on here.

    Yes, it is such hard work to find gratefulness.

    I know, with me it is.

    But the alternative? The alternative is a life, for me, where all I see is the struggle.

    I work hard to make sure I see the blessings. And it has healed me. More than before.

    I still begin the day with a struggle, but I look around, and try to be in the moment. I have such a problem with “pre-mourning,” mourning the day my 16 yr old son will be gone. And that makes me miss the minutes right now with him.

    It’s awful. College application requests are already coming in.

    I’m telling you, it is hard work to not burst into tears.

    Grateful Grateful Grateful..for the seconds I have with him now.
