2014: Moments

Instead of doing a post about the things I’ve learned in 2014, or what I am thankful for in 2014, I am just going to post some pictures from 2014. The truth is I am having a really hard time coming up with happy moments, because feelings of grief and sadness permeated everything. Yes I learned a lot about life, but nothing that makes me happy. Even when I was feeling “happy”, there was an undercurrent of grief. Or fear. Or sadness. So here are some pictures I took in 2014. Perhaps in these moments I felt some amount of happiness.

See you later, 2014. Don’t let the door hit you on the ass on your way out.

  1. I hear you on the constant undercurrent of grief and sadness. I do hope one day it wont be so prevalent in both of our lives. Here’s to hoping that you find true happiness during 2015!

    I understand it being hard to find an authentic happy moment in 2014. Everything we did in 2014 was a result of losing our boys – vacations, for example, were taken because we didnt have anything better to do – like raise our sons. Even down to this new pregnancy – we wouldn’t be pregnant right now if our twins were still alive. It is heartbreaking. I hope that 2015 gives you some peace, comfort, real happiness, and love. Also – love the pictures, especially of your pets 🙂

    Great pics! Thanks for sharing. I hope there aren’t so many hard lessons in life in 2015. I hope you get definite without a doubt, ear to ear with a smile, happy moments.
    Ps. I love paint nites! And they opened a really cool place in gillette that I’m dying to try. I’m gonna make my husband take me.

    Sending you love and luck for 2015 and hugs for everything you have endured during 2014.
    I like to think we’ve crossed paths before at a Pats game or in the city or at Hampton Beach and would never know it… makes me feel a little more connected to the “strangers” around me. HUGS

  6. Good idea. Keeping it real is so critical. Let’s not pretend it was a good year when it really sucked hard. Your boxer makes me miss my old rescue girl so much. Please give her (him?) a hug for me! Wishing you a gentler, more peaceful 2015.
