A Little Checked Out Tuesday

      We've got more curve balls and rocky roads ahead as a family. I'm in knots about so many things. I'm plugging away at house things, anything I can do that feels like a little bit in my control, a little order. It's the plates of unknowns and chaos the four of us have spinning that feel precariously unbalanced, ready to crash one or all at any time. I hope my kids each catch a break at some point. I know I can't live through their success and happiness. But, it's sure hard to see the challenges and be of no help, other than a soft space for their plates to land. Maybe they'll just crack instead of smash. After all, cracks are where the light gets in, right?

  2. Thinking of you all, feeling similar knots for various reasons myself. You and your kids have each other, and the soft space you provide for them to crash is amazing.

  3. Cracks are indeed where the light gets in, but so does the rain. May it only be a sprinkle and all of you move into the light.

  7. I don’t know if Mercury is in the microwave again or what, but it seems like life is strange and challenging for so many people I know right now. Health stuff, job stuff, moving, more questions than answers. Sending grace and hugs and patience to you and yours. JoAnn

  8. I'm hoping the curves and rocky roads smooth out some. Your being a soft place to land is surely very comforting for your kids.
