This season has been so unbelievably challenging. With a new addition to the family, my hormones driving me literally crazy, lack of sleep, my mind being all over the place, health issues, getting my soon to be Kindergartener on a good routine and feeling like I'm in a tunnel but forgot the flash light. All these frustrating challenges can really cause a person to stop and take in all the beauty, blessing and even just a nice long deep breath. I'm trying so hard to be thankful for the what I do have. The big things like....a roof over my head, a full belly, a family that loves me, eyes that see, ears that can hear and another day a life. And...even the little things like...sidewalk chalk, vibrant beautiful colors, the ability to draw, this moment to myself and nice weather. The thing is, even though I am thankful, it still does not make the challenges any easier. Sorry...this isn't a Joel Olsteen "Everything can be perfect if you just believe and pray" kind of post. It's a "This is real life" post. A person can be thankful but still be miserable all at once. This momma is just waiting for these water to calm down, so she can finally tread the waters of life again.
