“You forget that, in the dark, we must move closer together in order to see each other. You were never alone.”
I'm sitting here at another AWP event, ever grateful for the ability to be among these women. These ladies have not only allowed me to see that I am not alone, but given me the ability to pursue my passion, and in return, do all I can to make their journey one that they can be proud of and enjoy after such tragedy.
From laughter to hope to inspiration, there are so many things their presence has given and brought into what once seemed like an empty soul-less life. But even more, is gratitude.
My fellow widows have made me grateful for a life i once loathed having. They've made me grateful for being willing to open up to let life in, and let those around me know they are loved.
I have no fancy blog today, just a simple note on all that you have given me. Thank you.
