Dear March 18/2012,
You have some nerve. Turning what should have been a pretty uneventful day into a whirlwind of chaos and pain. We were bored. We were just looking for something to do when we were driving that day. What did my boyfriend and I do to deserve what happened to us that day? We are, generally, good people. Things like that aren’t supposed to happen to people like us. We had no intentions of ever having a semi truck smash into the side of us, but it would seem you had different plans.
Just what was it that you thought you were accomplishing? Were you expecting to break us? Expecting to turn our lives completely upside down? And for what? For plain curiosity in simply seeing how far you could go? Perhaps you were bored. Perhaps you were just wanting something to do.
I hate to break it to you, but you did us a favor that day. You made us realize that we are not untouchable. But that we are stronger than we thought. Sure, we’ve been through pain the last year but we’ve also grown in a way that I don’t think could have been made possible without the events that happened that day.
So thank you, March 18/2012. Thank you for all that you did that day. But I’m glad you’re behind us.
Happy Crash-A-Versary Mike 😉 I love you sweetie. You are my happy place, even in the most un-happiest of times.
