I'm still here. This past month and a half has been incredibly difficult for our family -- probably the hardest we've experienced together until now --but things are thankfully settling down and life is almost back to normal. It's been ugly, it's been real, it's been real ugly. But there's beauty and love and strength and lessons you'll never forget in even the darkest of times. And by the grace of God, we get through it all, don't we? Forever changed, and maybe a bit scarred, but still here and even sometimes, possibly, thankful for it all. Mostly.
