Let the good times roll

Been a month of ups and downs. Mostly ups. Spending time with good friends and wonderful family. Just had our annual family reunion. It's always a great time, however it was even better this year because a) more of the extended family came and b) I got to share my family with my *new* family. It can be an adventure introducing new ingredients into an old recipe. But we seem to have created a great new concoction. One I hope stays around for a long, long time.

Oh, it's not been without some aches and pains. Disappointments and regrets. Questioning. But what I have now is worth the effort to work through all those things. Learning to trust. Trying to forget.  We can change the way we feel, just by deciding that we're going to feel differently. Sometimes we can do this instantly. Sometimes, it takes a while to happen. But it happens.
