Happy Independence Day. A year ago we were eagerly anticipating our young little bear cub so we chose to go and run for him today. We did almost 7 miles this morning and as a non-runner I can say that it was definitely his spirit that kept me slogging along. As always I owe him a big thanks and it's amazing what he's helping me do.
As you might imagine days like today are tough. It's just hard to swallow that he isn't here with us. Last night instead of our traditional Edgewater 3rd of July Fireworks and party we needed a break so we went to the movies. I couldn't believe that I was crying during the previews! Emotions are starting to surface that I haven't been expecting. It serves me as a reminder that there's a lot of work to be done. So I'm sad, and angry that he's gone, and I just can't understand why. It just feels incredibly unfair and I really just want him back.
Teri, Spider, Stripe, and Cowie have all been great. They have helped me through my manic moments and they're giving me lots of wonderful love. Thanks to all of you who have been reaching out. We're walking an emotional balance beam so if we don't take you up on your offer to do something please keep asking! We're just trying to survive.
All our Love,
