When the going gets tough

I haven’t blogged once this week.  Yes, it’s been one of those weeks.  An accumulation of things and me looking more frazzled than I typically do. When the going gets tough, I want to be stronger.  I think of people who have gone through much bigger things and how much I admire seeing their strength and compassion for others in the midst.  I’m not who I want to be.   This morning Jameson and I cuddled.  His mind was racing with things to tell me.  He is connecting more and more which is precious.  Then there was silence.   He reached out, grabbed my hand, and said ” I love you, mom”.  Perspective.  I’m getting perspective back.

This weekend my in-laws will be with us!  We have a birthday to celebrate with Grandpa Jim, Lucia’s dedication at church Sunday, and family.  We’ll be family.

  1. I’m sure things are hectic with work and taking care of two little ones. Please don’t go to any trouble for our visit. We are just excited to be with you all and don’t want to make extra work for you.
