Some school years are bumpier than others. This has certainly been one of those years. It’s had twists. It’s had turns. At times I think it flung us upside down and shook us all around! And I am DONE with it. I know that it’s not necessarily MY school year to be done with, but still. I’m the mom strapped in next to my kids until this educational and emotional roller coaster ends. Correction… FOUR roller coasters end. Ugh.
Well, I hope you all have a day where you are let off the ride!!!
This day was filled with ups and downs, twists and turns, and near misses and direct hits. Was it a good day? Was it a bad day? I have no clue. There is really only one word that comes close to defining this day. And it fits perfectly.
Well, I hope you all had a day that was a DOOZY!!!
Winding down from the past eight days hasn't been easy. Coming home to a house that is down so many in numbers has just been weird. And of course now it's time to get ready for Libs' and Reese's first day of school next week AND their birthdays.
Life is ALWAYS busy. At least mine is. And I love it. I don't mean the busyness. I mean the "life" part. My life is never boring. It's full of change. It's full of happiness and pain. We have great times and we have struggles. It simply amazes me that it all keeps moving fluidly. And we just glide along with all of it mapping out a new course as each day passes.
I agree that times can be hard. I'm currently in one. I'm grieving the changes in our family. I miss my kids and what was. But I know I'll adapt and figure it all out. That is the beauty that comes with accepting life as it is and as it should be. It will come. This time might be difficult but my life is still incredible. I still laugh and enjoy every crazy mixed-up and turned around situation I find myself in. And I love and adore the people who I have chosen and who have chosen me share them with. We drift through this life together like a stream. My life takes many twists and turns. I don't always see what lies beneath the water. Heck, sometimes I don't want to. But it's all a part of this magnificent opportunity we have been given time and time again … to find joy in each new day. And as long as I have breath, no matter what I may be facing, I will seek it.
Well, I hope you all have a day where you go with the flow!!!
