Officially my favorite month.
Not only is it National Crochet month
(and we all know why I love that)
but it's also Self Injury Awareness month.
I don't like to talk about it much
because it's a sore subject for me,
but I've struggled with self-injury
for a little over seven years.
It's been a tug-of-war most days,
but I've been winning for a little over three years
because my husband has shown me
that there is so much to be grateful for
and to love in this life.
Even when it feels like everything's falling apart
and everyone's against me, I have him to give me a reason
to love myself and the world around me,
