Although I am a generally happy person, life is not always unicorns, puppy dogs, rainbows and magical things. I try not to get too serious on this blog because seriously, where is the freaking fun in that? But as you know, sometimes I just have to.
Sometimes I have to talk about the serious to get back to happy and get back to where I was and where I want to be. So. Here we go (I accidentally typed ho at first and almost kept it but then realized that would probably take away from the serious, but eh, details, ha).
So if you saw some my tweets last week so you saw that it was one of those weeks.
One of those impossibly hard and difficult weeks where all you can think of is “when does something good happen?”
It was an eye opener to say the least and one of those weeks that made me so grateful to have so many wonderful friends and family.
In the course of four days, someone close to me lost their family dog. The next day they lost their baby to a very severe case of spina bifida four months into their pregnancy. And then my great uncle passed away.
Talk about a roller coaster of emotions over here.
We came together, we cried, we stayed close, we everything.
Although it was sad to lose the dog, he was so old and we all know he’s in a better place which made the loss a little easier to take.
The loss of the baby. Was insanely hard. For everyone. And it still is. It’s never easy and never will be. But we’re all in it together and I know that one day they will be wonderful parents, this just was not that time.
As for my great uncle, this weekend family from absolutely everywhere is coming together to celebrate his life. I am so proud that I had so much of my life to know him, to talk to him and to love him like the grandfathers I’d already lost.
So yes, life gets serious and life knocks the wind out of you. But you’ll be okay, I’ll be okay, we’ll all be okay.
With that, go hug someone right this second. Smile. Listen to some One Direction (because damn them and their uber catchy songs) and embrace a little bit of happy.
And next week I’ll be back with all sorts of wonderous things because it’s *cough*mybirthdayonwednesday*cough* so it better be one hell of a week!
happy weekend!Posted in Me Things
