There it is

I just finished Jake's this date. I went back and read the entire thing and realized I missed a few things, but decided not to add them in. I started this blog as therapy for myself. I was having a hard time letting go of the past and moving forward without fear that the past would come back. I used the example of waiting for the "ball to drop" at the end of Jake's story. I have really learned through this experience that I need to live each day for today. I can't worry about what tomorrow will bring, I just need to live in the now and be happy and thankful that I have what I have. That is tough for me because I'm a planner, with a little bit of control freak in me. I don't like the unknown, but have learned that I don't have a whole lot of choice in what is handed to me, I can only choose how I handle it. So that is where I am. I am going to continue to do this blog, well because I like it & would like to have a place for people to come and watch our family handle the new experiences that come our way.
