Birthday Fun 2019

My birthday was October 13 so we went to dinner at my mother-in-laws house.
My sister-in-law gave me a cute unicorn hat to put in my hair.

He also gave me a Dallas Cowboys blanket. I didn't take a photo 
of the blanket because I am snuggled  up in it to keep warm.

My in-laws gave me all kinds of fun gifts!

I also got a shawl but I didn't get a photo of it.
I took it to work to keep me warm this winter
while sitting at my desk.

Every Day Is Minute By Minute

Every day, I have to take things minute by minute, because grief washes over me in waves at unexpected times. I miss Colt so damn much. I want him back in this world. I want to hear his voice again. I want to hug him again. But the reality of it is....that won't happen.

And no, I don't say these things to get sympathy. I don't need to be told that things will get better. Life without your loved one does not get better....it is just a different "normal".
