wishing i were back in the cottage window enjoying peace and bliss .... facing reality.. trudging through... still blessed every day.. even the hard ones.. my new mantra for 2013 is "i can do hard things" ... by looking into the storm in the early months of this year, i did just that.. we have worked hard and changed many obstacles.. i deserved that window bliss.. that felt so different than just escaping.. it was deserved.. now, off to finish up some must do's before deserving some down time during spring break.
she will most likely not remember these early years quite yet but i will forever hold them in my heart. cheesy? yes. but it's true. i made her a priority today and these moments that i used to take for luci came flooding back. they bonded us. she may not remember them but she will feel them for many days/weeks to come.
so when your day starts out like this;
add some pink polish...
it's amazing what an impact of an hour of being in the moment can make.
i am looking for little bits of beauty in my days. our family is struggling more than ever these days. in the past we have dealt with some behaviors that are hard, but those behaviors met hormones. so right now we are consumed with him. CONSUMED.
so i look for any ray of sunshine, validation, or happy moment to get us by.
