Blink. Blink. Blink.

It’s like the errant fly.

Or the lone mosquito that sneaks in through the screen door.

You try to ignore it.  Try to focus on anything but it.  But in reality, you’re only prolonging the inevitable.

You know that the only way to silence it is to address it head on.

Be still, you dreaded blinking cursor.

I’m trying.  Truly.

And maybe that is the problem.

IF you're writing about what I think, then I want to tell you something. You are doing just as you should. Fighting to not allow the grief to engulf you. It's healthy to be sad and grieve your loss. But it's hard to BE in that place all the time. I know that when you want to escape, you have to work hard and fight for it.

You have to focus on what God HAS given you and not what has been taken away. It's tough and requires effort. But, it's good to try and focus everyday on something good that you HAVE and truly rejoice in that blessing.

It was so much WORK to be happy for the first year+. Now, I'm finding that I don't have to work as hard. Sometimes, not at all. I am becoming happy again. The grief does not have the control over me like it used to. It will happen. You will get there.

I'm here, M. Whether there's a hidden message to this post or it's really just about writer's block...I'll still be reading and praying and wishing the distance between TN and TX were a whole lot shorter.

Hugs, love, the usual. xoxo
