Four Years Later

December 2, 2009

I am not quite sure yet how to approach this day.  Do I give it recognition or treat it as just another day?  Do I weep or celebrate?  I just don’t know.  For now I am just going with it, not really doing much about it. 

Four years ago a horrific episode occured in my home, something that I wish never happened, but at the same token I am grateful for the opportunity to better myself.  I have been forced to better myself and I just don’t know if I would have had this journey of new self discovery if it wasn’t for that day.  Sure it is sad and the healing has been difficult, but I have learned SO much about love, life, friendship, compassion.  Luna is a very happy and spirited girl and I have worked very hard to encourage that.  I have taken very good care of myself; asked for help when I needed it, forced myself to eat and excercise, talked a lot to friends and therapists, I gave myself whatever it was that I needed to get through this. 

I am very thankful for each day that I have with my family. For having the opportunity to watch my children grow and flourish and for being able to kiss my husbands lips and feel his warmth all around me. I think these are the things I will focus on today.  I am not a victim, I am a survivor, a mother, a sister, a daughter and a friend.  Peace and love to all…
