Well, this should be a shorter post than my other ones, but I just wanted to share a few things and say hello!
So, first, hello! :) I saw my mom and some more of my family over this past weekend. It's nice having my mom up here so I can see her more often! But if you read my last blog post, my mom brought something to my attention... I was telling you guys that I was struggling to love my dad. Struggling to love him is not the right phrase. She asked me, "If Madison called you right now and told you that dad died in a car accident, how would you react?" I almost started crying in the car and I was like, well obviously I would be very upset. And she said, "Okay, well there you go. You love him." That just got me thinking... I don't exactly know the right word now, though. I'm struggling to accept him? I'm struggling to understand him? I guess those are true, but I guess I'm just struggling with my hurt. When the divorce was actually in progress, I suppose I had my few moments, but I mostly just shoved down the emotions so I could concentrate on college, keep my grades up, and swim hard. Now, with everything happening, I almost think that those emotions are welling up now, the ones I've held back for so long. I think the correct phrase is that I'm struggling to heal...still.
Anyway, I'm so excited! I've got two formals coming up, mine and Phillip's! :) They are going to be super fun, and I'll be posting pictures, so look out for those!
Thanks for reading.
