Bath time has probably been the hardest part since heart surgery for Luna. It is a huge point of stress as it can be painful and she forgets about the scar most of the time and at bath it is brought to her attention again. (Think of how you can forget about a paper cut until you see it and then it seems to hurt suddenly. And this is a lot bigger than a paper cut!) To get through bath time, we use lots and lots of fun and distractions! The favorite has been a group bath with big sissy and big brother, everyone wearing bibs to hide their chests and eating popsicles in the bath! It still ended in some tears once we had to clean the incision but it definitely helped! First smiles in the bath since we brought her home. #ourlunabear #heartwarrior #chd #stepbystep👣 #dayatatime #ouradoptionjourney

Post Processing of a Dumbell Nebula (Messier 27), NGC 7331, & Globular Clusters (Messier 15 and Messier 2, respectively) taken at 30s exposures.

On the day that we took these I was having a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. .
My uncle has been fascinated with Astronomy since he was child growing up in the South Bronx. After getting his first library card he spent several hours in the 500 section learning as much as he could. On his 12th birthday he was gifted his first telescope. .
I reached the backyard at about 9p to find his #Celestrontelescope already set up alongside a computer. My face betrayed nothing, the only emotion presented was curiosity and excitement. We proceeded to view a variety of nebula’s, galaxies, and star clusters many lights years away. .
It helped to get out my head and for a few hours be transported a long way away from my Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. For that, I am grateful.

One of the biggest driving forces in my life for pursing healing, freedom, health, restoration, and redemption... from all stuff “yuck” ... has been and still is...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
...our girls and their children...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
... whatever it takes to not hand them a “bucket” of 💩😝😝... I am in.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Not perfectly... not as fast as I would like sometimes... and often times ... super messy, hard, and wonky...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But seriously... they are worth all the work... and so am I!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And so are you! 🙌❤️🔥😘

It’s a day late but not a sweat dollar short. Shift 3 of making the commitment! I had to take a 15min break to help a buyer negotiate a beneficial contract for my buyer, But I promise I paid every rep missed back. We finished the workout with pull-ups and in-between sets I realized we all set a standard you hold ourselves to or the pull up bar. While it is hard to get up there you gotta keep pulling even when it’s tough, because if you keep it up it will get easier! .

"Nothing in nature blooms all year. Be patient with yourself."
.
This spoke to me deeply recently. Some of you may know I'm prone to bouts of bleakness...and judging from the last few years, it seems to be something cyclical - at a certain phase of the year, for some reason. I have been harsh with myself and felt the need to snap out of it and be my sprightly self again. I have also learnt to sit with the yickiness and some days I may not make it out of bed; some days putting on pants are an achievement. Distractions sometimes help, other times they don't. Intoxicants sometimes help, other times they don't. And I've realised being as grateful as I am for my life doesn't always help see out of the dark either...if anything, it's a vicious cycle of feeling I don't deserve to be down, which sends me in a spiral...
.
But as the seasons change, I am slowly returned to myself. As Aug moves into Sep into Oct, like summer transitions into fall, the heat softens and everything becomes more colourful. More than ever, i am celebrating victories, even the smallest ones and relishing each moment:
I love the work I've been gifted, to work with these hands, to bring joy, to nourish, to be part of your celebrations.
I love my tribe, the ones who've always been and the ones who are becoming.
I love that I'm brave enough to put myself out there, like I haven't in awhile.
I love fusses over birthdays.
I love that a little gold dress can make me sparkle from the inside 💫
I love that my head is with the balloons 🎈
I love that making béchamel turns me on.
I love that I am still learning so much about myself and learning to be patient with myself.
.
And this pic says it all for how I feel in this moment ❤ and I'm gonna celebrate it

Love this so much. Why do we get so caught up in ourselves sometimes? We forget that we aren’t the only ones going through difficult circumstances. If we practice these things, hopefully it spreads onto others. ;) #compassion #kindness #humility #gentleness #patience #foodforthought #nothingbutloveforya

Positive Wednesday vibes!

Usually at the late afternoon I am way in the deficits of ‘spoons’ but as single mom and Golly you push through. ❤️❤️#chronicillness #chronicpainwarrior #singlemom #dayatatime #faith #lifteachotherup #recovery #support
