Time for a new attitude of gratitude and fond memories to gently move me in the right direction.

Back to basics and focusing on the physical.
Food wise, I have done well, but there is another component to incorporate.
Perhaps that may even chase away the doldrums that seem to envelope me, this time of year since my oldest son died.

He would want me to enjoy Winter, with the same childlike wonder, I have always had.

Spring is around the corner and planning a garden, as well as my program in the coming season, are enjoyable tasks, for I love to dream of possibilities. Some will be awesome, some so-so and some duds, but that is life!

My family and I walk, each year in the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, Richmond, Out of the Darkness Walk, to honor my son Kenny, who died in 2014 and to raise funds for research, education and to reduce the number of suicides as well as erase the stigma associated with suicide and mental illness. Kenny's Waking Warriors is a big part of my life.
I know that Kenny is closer than I think, and I will see him again.

    Always end the day with a positive thought. No matter how hard things were, tomorrow’s a fresh opportunity to make it better.
