After everything that happened last week I find myself thinking that the things I write here are just so insignificant. I find myself wanting to write so many things but the words will not come. My life has changed so much in one short week. I cannot even begin to describe how I’m feeling right now. Perhaps in time the words will come, but until then I suppose I will continue with the insignificant daily drivel that has become my blog.
One highlight of last week was that I finally attended my very first Mardi Gras parade and tasted my first King Cake. The parade was a small one in my hubby’s hometown and nothing compared to the New Orleans parades, but we had a decent time considering the circumstances of the week. We arrived in Louisiana early Tuesday morning and by that afternoon hubby was needing to get out of the house for a bit and get his mind off of the situation we were facing. So, we loaded Zach up in the stroller and walked down to the parade. The parade was nice, but mostly just a distraction for us. Here are a few pics from the parade:

Oh! What fun! It looks like it was a great day, if only to remind you all that life is around us all the time…we just need to live it!
I don’t think it is meaningless to go back to posting about the “little things” in your life. For one, it’s cathartic and for another, life HAS to go on – whether you want it to or not. It doesn’t mean you have forgotten, but you have to put one foot in front of another to walk out of such a mist of grief. Please keep in mind I am coming from the viewpoint of having a friend who just lost her 36 year old husband in a horrific car wreck at the end of January. So, I hope my words don’t come across as trite. Hang in there.
I’ve been thinking about you. I’m glad you’re hanging in there. And I could not have put it any better then cagey did regarding your blog.
