Although every day is a challenge where the will to do anything is largely forced, I am still around. Nearly four months have passed yet it seems like yesterday and especially as the first thing I see upon waking each afternoon is the spot where our eyes last met. Amazingly, I'm keeping it together for Ava but my overall life perspective has changed significantly. I now understand why the hearts of men harden with age except when it comes to my daughter. She of course is all that matters and for those wondering, has been doing well. Since last post we've continued to find our way while juggling a complicated lifestyle that is still evolving. At a time when mild weather would be a blessing, it figures it would be so stubbornly cold. There have been highlights when available time and circumstance met.
