I can try & try to let things go..

Both Cony and I figured it was time to get this blog up and going again since we've moved to a foreign land called Connecticut. What better day to start this than on the 2nd anniversary that dad passed. It's been a journey. Sometimes good. Sometimes bad. There's still a small part of my heart that stops every time I hear a phone ring. I never know how August 10th is going to be. Will I just be a ball of mess or have I gotten to the point where I can just celebrate my dad for who he was? If I don't cry, does that make me a bad person? If that's all I do is cry, does that make me a weak person? These are all the thoughts that go through my crazy mind and am slowly receiving the answers.

Although my life is nothing what I thought it would be by the time I was 30. I have to believe that he would be proud of me. I've taken the path that was right for me. I've experienced things that has brought me to the depths of despair and out of that despair has brought me more love that I can comprehend. Growing up having a dad coach every type of sport, you hear things that you tend to push aside. However, the slogan 'No Pain, No Gain' really does have more meaning than one.

We hope to share with you our love, our happiness and sometimes our heartache. Because let's face it, whose life is always peachy? I don't want this blog to portray anything that is not real.

I really wish I had a photo of my dad to share but since our computer AND external hard drive both crashed that's not possible. So enjoy a quote I read today..

"If you love life, life will love you back..."

Megan - You're father was practically my father during the most dramatic stages of life - high school. What he put up with...wow! I am embarressed. My feelings about him were up and down most days. But then I became a coach and a parent...I get it. I get him and I will always, 100% respect, honor, love and remember him. I know he would be proud of you. I know it. I have not talked with you for years - just facebook - but I can tell you are a beautiful young lady (A talented one too!! Come hell or high-water, someday you will take my family pictures!!) He would be very proud. I have a picture of him on my office bullentin board - I think of him almost everyday. Ah - I could on and on - but I won't. But I am looking forward to reading your blog. Thanks - Anne Hale

Great post and so true - the importance of your father and the growth from challenges.

Let me know if you need some pictures. I don't have many, but some oldies/goodies.

Hope you have a wonderful time in CT. So many places to go and experience up that way.

Looking forward to your posts.
