I received some unexpected, life-changing news two months ago. It’s safe to say that I’ve never felt so helpless, confused, disappointed and low-spirited. My world was turned upside down, and I had absolutely no control over what was happening. Though I tried to make everything seem as normal as possible, it didn’t keep me from going down an emotional roller coaster (as I hoped it would — but who was I kidding?). This was certainly one of those cases where “I never thought it would happen to me,” and in the end, it did.
But I’m finally past asking “Why?” this happened. I’ve completely come to terms with what is to come in the future, all thanks to my faith and the support of those closest to me.
So I’d like to take this time to thank everyone who has been there for me over the last couple of months, whether you’re a friend, coworker or family member. I appreciate all of the well wishes, concern and encouragement. Because of your support, I’ve been able to remain strong in spite of this challenging situation, and I’ve been able to help pull my family through it, as well.
For everyone else who’s reading, please keep my family and me in your thoughts and prayers. I know we’ll be okay from here on out, just as long as we keep our eyes looking ahead.
With all of that said, I’m aiming to return to my usual routine soon, which means this blog will be “back to its regularly scheduled programming.” Stay tuned.
