Happy Turkey Day

Thanksgiving is tomorrow. It's a special day for us, Thanksgiving. In 2004, Scotty proposed to me at our annual family get together. That makes tomorrow a sweet anniversary and the marker for all (hopefully) happy and great things to come. I wish everyone out there a happy, love-filled holiday. Be safe, eat a lot, and be happy, wherever you are.

Life Goes On...

So, life keeps going. Despite all the pain, the loss and the sadness, life keeps going. We get up, we shower, we eat and we keep living. Sometimes, that fact actually provides me with some comfort. And yet, there are other times when the fact that life keeps going on in midst of all the devastation we experience seems like a stupid and cruel joke.

Anyway, here are some photos of the happy moments of this year so far. People always comment on how happy I look in every photo; how I smile with my whole face; how, to look at me, you couldn't tell that I was carrying so much weight with me at all times. So, maybe I should remind myself of the happy times more often. Not to forget the sad ones, but to feel comforted by remembering that although my life's on hold, I am still capable of feeling and looking happy at times.

Here's to a day when real happiness decides to dwell within me. Here's to the day when my smile is not hiding my soul's wounds.

With that, enjoy,
