We Move Along

When everything is wrong, we move along

Since turning 40, a lot of wonderful things have happened. But one big ugly not wonderful thing happened too. I am not yet comfortable bringing all to the public, but our close friends and family know.

What I am comfortable saying is that we are moving along. Our family is getting through it. We are strong.

And that is all because of the kindness and love that has been flowing over us this past month as we bring more and more friends and family into the know about this dumb thing that is happening.

It has felt, at times, that absolutely everything was wrong.

But we didn’t let that feeling last because it wasn’t true. One ugly thing was wrong, but everything else was wonderful. We have a wonderful life and wonderful people in it.

And we will keep moving along with the help and prayers of those people.

We move along one step and one answer at a time. And hopefully, soon, we will move beyond this.

We will stay strong.

When all you got to keep is strong
Move along, move along like I know you do
And even when your hope is gone
Move along, move along
Just to make it through

Thank you to everyone who has offered thoughts, prayers, and other acts of kindness to our family over the past month. We love you and feel you walking with us.

About Katie

Just a small town girl...wait no. That is a Journey song. Katie Sluiter is a small town girl, but she is far from living in a lonely world. She is a middle school English teacher, writer, mother, and wife. Life has thrown her a fair share of challenges, but her belief is that writing through them makes her stronger.
