Reposting From Writing For Myself : Reflections

This was originally posted in March 2015, my first month as a blogger.
I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed this post.
This post reminds me of my life.
Why I left Colorado where I thrived.
Bobby died 9 years ago in Colorado where we both lived. I was in the process of leaving my beloved Colorado, the mountains…4 seasons and SNOW for Florida and a climate I knew I would hate.
Yet, I was in Love for the first time in over 25 years. Florida was where Danny lived.
I have been in Limbo MOST of the last 9 years.
A mom without a child. A wife who loves her hubby and is loved back. We have a good life. We work and live at Lake Kissimmee State Park outside of Lake Wales….We restored a cracker house and are now living in it.
He is a park ranger and I volunteer. Or I was till recently.
I am a country girl and I do love what we have…MINUS THE WEATHER.
YET, I long for Colorado and Bobby’s Mountain where I tossed his ashes. I miss the VAST Arid spaces and clear blue skies…
I am a teacher and I miss KIDS.
I am lost here in Our Neck Of The Woods.
Time is passing me by….

  1. A lovely post, Sarah. Our paths are personal and I don’t think we can do better than to follow our hearts. I’m so sorry for the loss of your child and how adrift that feels. I hope your journey is healing and wondrous and that you find all that you seek in your heart. <3

    1. Thank you for this. It means a lot. 🙂
