Sometimes my dad can just be stupid and insensitive.
My dad is acting all weird because I’m leaving for college in a few months and I just want to go back to being referred to as the girl who sleeps upstairs sometimes.
Well. Today we should be getting excited and buying and wrapping presents for my niece’s first birthday. But we’re not. Instead I’m making 10 little bows to wear in my hair. One for each day Avery was alive. She taught me how short life can be and that we need to rejoice and be thankful for all the good in the world rather than dwell in the bad, even though that can be hard. So these next 10 days I’m going to try harder than ever to see the good in everything. Thank you Avery for blessing the world with your beautiful presence for the time you could. Happy early birthday, I love and miss you still.
Doctor Who + ice cream + cherry limeade + cheese + Jello mousse temptations = insta-feel-good.
Just when you think you’re in the clear and everything is going to get better, it just… Doesn’t.
