Just now starting to appreciate being "alone". Actually, the realization came to me a few months ago. I think it's my time to reboot, re-energize, think and just be. I like being alone in my thoughts, I like having time to think. I've also come to realize how strong I am and how much I can do, alone. I'm amazed everyday at the things I have done, the things I can do. There was a time that I was so angry that I would accomplish something that was one of Mark's chores and I couldn't fully appreciate that I could do it all by myself. I'm not saying I like doing it all alone, I'm saying that I've come to appreciate that I can. It's one of the many lessons Mark's death has taught me. I'm stronger than I ever imagined. I can be alone and be just fine.
