Breaking the Silence

I haven't blogged in over a month.

It isn't writer's block, although I do find it difficult to find words in the month of June and much of July. And sometimes even May.

It isn't that I've been busy, although I should be planning an end-of-the-month 6th birthday party with lots of invitations, balloons and a cake. But I'm not.

The "party" will be only for the three of us and there will be streamers and balloons, gifts, lunch out and a special event. And I will smile, laugh and hug my dear daughter. And when I'm alone (hopefully) I'll cry. Some day there may be a real party just like some day there may no longer be flashbacks, nightmares, hyper-vigilance, and fear.


Please learn more about it, because I am not the only one...
