And the day just keeps getting better....

Today was doctor visit number two. Although we didn't think that we would dive into this again (not being specific for a reason), we are diving. It's good, didn't think it would be, but it is. Walking out to the end of the board, looking down, and realizing that the drop is far but we can handle it, feels good. We have been here and done this before. It's not the first time. The visit today brought positive and hopeful news. I left with a smile.

For a few days, things have seemed happier. Realizations have been made and continue to be made, making each day a bit easier. Conversations that occurred today, would have gone a lot different a few months ago, even a few weeks ago. It is getting easier.

Life on Mount Eden is looking up, for once in five months. It feels good, real good. There will still be bad days, I know. Hopes are not high, like they were in the past. But smiles are on the faces of two individuals in a little house on a country road.

Upon returning home from work today, I paid a visit to the little black box with the red flag. To my surprise for the first time in a few weeks, I received some special mail. Not one, but two! I received two cards from BLMs. I thought to myself, "And the day just keeps getting better." I love receiving mail from BLMs, it means the world to me. When I opened the cards up, not only were they cards, but each had its own little personalization. Thank you girls, thank you!!!!

Each card had so many wonderful details. From the envelope, to the card, to the inside contents. You can tell when a card is from a BLM, because so much love and care was put into it. See for yourself:







And what a wonderful quote, so very perfect....



So as the day is drawing near, I find myself reflecting on nothing but good things today, which brought even more happiness. Yes, it is getting easier. Time doesn't heal, the pain will never be healed. But life is unfolding around us and the sun seems to be just down the path ahead of us.

This is a very good post. You are moving forward and you are definantly stronger after all you have been thru. You made it through that you can make it thru anything. That is what I have been living by for a while now.
