February's Rollercoaster Ride

February is such a roller coaster ride in our family. So many good and bad memories surround this month. We have birthdays, holidays, anniversaries of marriage and of deaths. We go up and down on the emotions scale and by the time this short month is over we are all exhausted.

Our experiences are what mold and shape us into the people we become and are. As hard as these life trials are, they are necessary. The good things help us get through the not so good ones. It is easy for me to say this (especially since we are close to a happy holiday now) but much harder to live these words (as the anniversary of Mom's death approaches).
