My mind has been dark the last few weeks.
A new year and so much to look forward to and yet I feel like I have been wading through quicksand or stuck in a thick soupy fog.
Its been 10 years since my dad died, 2 years since my grandmother passed away and a year since my brother left us.
It feels like just yesterday, like a blink and here I am.
My uncle has cancer. He cant beat it, no matter how hard he tries or how much we will it.
I feel like curling up in bed, pulling the covers over my head and never coming out.
And then I look at my husband, my beautiful children, my amazing life and I get up, I look to the sun and I carry on!
