Nine months…

Nine months. That’s approaching one year. One year is that much closer to the inevitable “he’s been gone longer than we were together” thing I dread.  Well maybe not “dread”, but certainly I’m aware of it. Nine months also seems like such a long time. A lot can happen in nine months. A life can be created, grown, and birthed in nine months. A child can go from student to graduate in nine months. If you’re lucky enough to live where the seasons are truly experienced, you experience three changes of seasons in nine months. When I look at the past nine months in my life, a lot has happened – a LOT. Those of you who know me personally know this to be true.  A lot can happen in nine months. And a lot can just hang there too, suspended in time, not moving, not changing – just hanging. In these past nine months, I’ve come to accept that both are okay.
