It’s just another day

I woke up today, and despite the fog (day 5) I felt calmly optimistic. Sure, I still want a not-so-wonky house (with a yard), less financial stress (looking at private school & preschool for the babies), no surgeries on the horizon (two in the next two months), and a seaside vacation someplace where I’m not afraid to swim (sans sharks & trash) would be nice. But it’s my family that brings me home today. Actually most days.
Zel’s insistence on wearing her size 10 ballet flats while scootering (she’s a size 5),
Georgie’s drunken sailor sauntering,
Riley’s impressive independence.
That’s what fills my heart. And my spirit. And then there’s our rock. Kirky. This dad-o-three, who was still single exactly 3 years ago. His commitment to this family, his tireless pursuit of his dream (which is now our dream).
His ability to pick up just where I leave off (or pass-out) with this messy crew is impeccable. It’s a blessing. All of it. Always. But some days I just need a reminder. A pinch in my own a**.
Here’s what I know… Life is good. And the sun is shining somewhere. Probably even 10 blocks east.
*And Kirky’s even making good coffee these days. Bonus.
