7 Year Blogiversary

This humble, little space on the web is seven years old today.

This blog and I have been through a lot together. From knowing absolutely nothing when I set it up, to blogging like a fiend about a lot of dumb things, to finding my focus, to life getting more intense and time-consuming, to quiet introspection.
I haven't written very much through this first year since my husband died. I have thought about never blogging again.

But something keeps niggling at me to not throw in the towel just yet. They say you shouldn't make any big decisions in the first year of grief....

So this is to commemorate my very first day blogging. I understand that people may have forgotten about me because I've been so quiet as of late, and that's OK.

I just wanted to say that I am still here, and I think I may be able to start writing about things other than Mark's death and my grief soon.

I mean, after all, I may have lost my husband, but I have gained a lot of perspective and wisdom, another cat and even another kid. Oh yeah, there's a still unfolding story right there! 

So if you're still checking in with me, thank you. Thank you for hanging in there, being supportive, kind and patient.

Because I am still learning to dance in the rain.
