Logan's 6th birthday is in two days. It's not that I'm trying to forget it or avoid it. No, I could never forget. I don't want to forget. I want to honor the anniversary of the day I first laid eyes on and fell in love with him. I want to do the things that he loved to do, eat the foods that he loved to eat, and be with the people he loved best. And I'll do those things on July 31.
But to keep my heart from breaking until then, I'll distract myself with the Games; with stories of triumph and victory and success. And in some cases, sadness and disappointment. And I'll continue my frenetic freelancing, too. Because a good distraction can be hard to find, and I'm blessed to have a good one at my disposal.
