I am going to be trying out some of the Daily Prompt blog prompts this year as well. Just to get my writing better and on a more consistent habit.
I know my family and friends will all fall out of their chairs when they read that I am even thinking of writing a book. I know there are tons of books already out there from grieving parents about every way a child could pass, but maybe my story is a little different and has a different perspective than all the others and if it helps one person besides me and I can get someone to publish it, then I have achieved my goal.
So now, for FLOAT – this is what I have felt like I have been doing for the last year or so, floating through life. Not wanting to feel anything. Just get through the day and get away from “happy” people. It was hard, and I won’t say it isn’t still hard, to hear about colleagues, friends, family all living life and loving what is going on in their lives. Getting married, engaged, having babies,etc.
Now, the new year of 2017, I am looking forward to “floating” through it with peace, grace, and mercy that only God can give to me. I have faith that Jesus will hold me in his arms on the days that I can’t walk beside him. I feel good that I have chosen to start to move forward with life, that doesn’t mean I am leaving my precious Big Bubby behind, just that I am finding a way to carry on.
Watch out 2017, the Snider’s are looking toward a fun filled, memory making, blessed new year. You will cooperate! 🙂
