I'm finally okay with September.

September hasn't always been my best month.

I got married September 20, 2003.

And divorced September 28, 2005.

I lost my Dad on September 18, 2004.

Jordan moved out and off to school on September 16, 2010. But as hard as that was to have an empty nest, it was bittersweet too.

But I have decided to stop thinking so much about September. It's really just another month. My marriage...my divorce....all led me to where I was meant to be today.

Which is a whole lot happier than I ever was then!

Losing my Dad was part of life. I love him and I miss him all the time...

And Jordan has grown so much the past two years. He's such an adult! haha Seriously, I find myself worrying less and less about him as time goes by, because I know that I did right by him. I raised a good kid. He is smart and mature and funny and driven and sweet and loveable and most of all he's the best thing I've ever done in my life. Him leaving home, and starting his own life, isn't a bad thing at all.

So hey, September....you've taught me a lot over the years, and many meaningful things have happened during your month.

But there are 11 more just like you, waiting to be lived to their fullest.

And I'm all about enjoying the ride.

By the way, I'm still madly in love with this little girl. Grammy's girl....
