A New Day, A Fresh Start

I had allotted myself a week: to grieve, to question. It was time for a decision. Little man was depending on me and I had already wasted too much time. I wished I could stay in bed with the covers over my head but that was not an option. I wish a lot of things lately.

I packed up my car for the second time in two weeks. The road was my shoulder to cry on, the wind was a listening ear.

Mile after mile was clocked, Jackson's snores kept my thoughts company from the back seat.

The Chicago skyline glistened in the sunrise, my fears knotted in my gut.

A new day.

A fresh start.

Hopefully, the right one.

Jackson and I have arrived safely to the Chicago area to stay with my dad. You all have no idea how much your supportive words and messages have meant to me. I have no way to know when I will be able to post but I hope to use this space for healing (and soon!)


  1. Good luck Sam!! I hope everything works out for you. Glad you and Jackson made it there safely.

  2. We'll be thinking about you guys!

  3. Good things to come, my friend...I can feel it. I am a hop skip and a jump from you and here if you need me.
