I realized today that it's been a year...a year since my life started to change forever. I thought at 34 and after 12 years of being with the same person that I pretty much knew how things were gonna go from here on out. It's amazing how much a year can change someone. Over the course of a year I have become a completely different person:
An important person moved 2000 miles away and I found out just how much you can miss someone.
I became the friend that kept everyone's secrets.
I started running to stay sane.
The secrets quietly crushed my soul.
I began to learn how to share myself.
I started to break rules.
I helped my husband through a surgery.
I bought a new car.
My property was invaded.
I gained a brother-in-law.
I traveled to 3 new places...all on my own.
I discovered a girl I'd known for 4 years is one of the coolest people I know.
My better half got us in a lot of trouble.
I'm learning how to golf.
I learned how important it is to just breathe.
I know it's OK that sometimes its just best to be numb.
I thought that time would make you miss someone less...that's not true.
I started writing again.
I now realize that it took 2000 miles for the important person to become an amazing friend and confidant.
