This past week has been an emotional one. We started school, dealt with a migraine for one child, a cold for another one, and another kidney stone for my husband. Today I pretty much threw my well-intentioned schedule out the window, due to weariness and lack of sleep. I’m not giving up on it, but there will be other days to try again. For now it’s just walking out one day at a time, feeling thankful for each day I wake up alive and well to be with my family. The time goes by too fast to take these days with them for granted.
