It is always a dark date/day for me. It is still hard, but it is getting easier. I smile more now when I remember and cry less. I have some awesome friends that posted some pics on FB that brought back some great memories and some laughs, as well as a few, OMG…what were we thinking! Bitter sweetness. February is a tough month with all of the loss experienced. I allow myself the whole month to swan dive into the pit of apathy, wallow around in it, and then GTFO. Tomorrow will begin my Spring.
