I am now coming up on the 2 year anniversary of both my Uncle's death and Kam's. I am happy to say although I miss them and still have moments of grieving - sadness that come up - I am over the biggest parts of my grieving. I know that many things helped me get through it all. Master of course is one of the main reasons I was able to move forward. He was really great in just supporting me and understanding when things seemed to be falling apart around here. He helped me when he could and of course he got frustrated and angry at some things I did but he still was there for me. Other things that helped me were good friends - such as the friends we met last year that moved to the area. I can't imagine not having them around - even if we only see them once a month or every other month. I enjoy their company so much. They have come to mean so much to me and I count them as blessings in my life.
Meeting katie was also a big moment for me that helped me keep looking forward as she is such a lovely person who is so inspiring to be around. I really wished we would have had more time together but so glad we keep our friendship alive through online contact at least. I truly don't know what I would do without such a wonderful friend who I can be myself with even when complaining or sharing joy. You are a beautiful person inside and out katie and I love and adore you! So thankful we were able to meet in 2011 and hope to see you again in 2012.
My long time friends have been a great help too - Jouet and Jessica. Jouet for making me laugh and telling me wonderful stories of her life. They were always a good distraction and it is always fun to live vicariously through others. The cupcake story I still replay in my head often. :) Jessica - for allowing me to cry and vent even when it was irrational. Thank you so much for being there even when I was at my worst. I love you both so much and am so thankful to have you as friends.
And last but not least I know that teacup coming into our lives really helped me look forward to the future...giving me hope for a bright future. A future I have dreamed about for so long and was not sure we were going to find someone to fit into. She came to us in an unexpected way when we weren't looking and now we are moving towards being a family. I cherish the memories we have already created and look forward to the ones we will make in the days to come. I love and adore you, teacup. Thank you for coming into our lives and wanting to be a part of this family with all the ups and downs.
I know I am forgetting people - so many people reached out to me during my struggles and I appreciate every single person...each time someone commented on my livejournal or blog, emailed me, dropped me an offline message or message on fetlife - it meant the world to me and helped me through it. I have amazing friends and family - I am very thankful for having such a good life and you all enriching it.
