Just some thoughts

  I haven't really been writing down how I'm doing since the birth of my daughter.  This is how I have been feeling...
 * I laugh
 * I smile
 * I live
 * I love
 * I'm Happy
 * I'm Sad
 for the most part I keep on living my life.

My road trip by myself was wonderful.  I had a great time being able to see my friend and her little newborn baby.  I had a great time snuggling up to the cute little baby.
It is nice knowing that I can go on a road trip by myself and being able to have a fun journey.  I got to sing loudly to my music in the car.  I got to enjoy the beauty of the mountains and the open fields.  I got to enjoy the rain to the sunshine on the way there and the way back.  I'm proud to say I can drive through a heavy rainstorm and come out on the other side with the sun.  I loved Winnie-the-Pooh when I was little I remember watching the cartoon when I was little.  Well whenever I see rain clouds I think of the song Winnie-the-Pooh bear sings "I'm just a little black rain cloud..." I always picture the page or the cartoon when he covers himself up and sings the song to get to the honey bees.  The page and the cartoon it is a beautiful day around him.  I always think well I know somewhere beyond this little rain cloud the sun is out and shining and it will shine sometime soon.  My life has had a little rain cloud hanging over me since my daughter.  Some days I have the little rain cloud other days I have the sun.  It was such a nice feeling to drive through the rain and see the sun shining.  I know that one day it will be just the sun shining.  I wanted to tell you about Winnie-the-Pooh because when we were first married I bought some cute little quotes on pieces of wood to decorate our first apartment.  Well the decoration eventually came to live in my daughters nursery because I just wanted a saying of Winnie-the-Pooh for my little girl to be able to look at and read.
here is the quote...

"If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together... there is something you must always remember. you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we're apart... I'll always be with you."
A.A. Milne
I read this when I got home from the hospital and it was such a great little comfort my friend when she came over one day took a picture of it because she thought it was such a cute saying.  We now have it hanging up in our hallway in our new place and whenever I see it this is a simple reminder.  So going on this road trip I wasn't alone and I had the company of my daughter watching over me.
as for my journey through this it is still a step at a time.
I walk a little braver, I'm stronger than what I believe.
