Well Ladies and Gentlemen some of us just got through out first Christmas and Christmas Eve without our partners.  I say to all of us, and to myself too, well done.  We may have been a puddle of tears, we may have not been ourselves but the fact remains that we preserved. Honestly it was probably one of the most difficult things I have had to do other than get through this Thanksgiving.  I hope everyone can get through New Years eve and day as best they can and I just keep reminding myself to be kind to myself. Ive never had to navigate these waters before and as much as some days feel hopeless and horrible I just keep taking one day, and sometimes one minute at a time.

Thank you so much for the inspiration!!! It was really hard but we did it. New Years was far from easy for me. I dreaded it and i was super anxious but I made it through. One minute at a time, one foot in front of the other. Celebrate each day that we get up and try again. Celebrate each night that we make it through the day. Sending you love...
