Written after the first holiday season after my husband's death.

Progress Report

The holidays are over,
And I survived!

From your birthday in October,
through Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Eve.

Bittersweet memories of the past,
So many memories.
Some brought tears, others, smiles;
But all are treasured more than ever now.

New memories and traditions being made,
Good times, in spite of the grief.

And now as the New Year begins,
A feeling of accomplishment, for holding on,
And enthusiasm, instead of fear, for the future.

God is good!
