we are shockingly now into the eleventh month of this year.
a year filled with so much change but also sameness, a year with new habits, but with the old ones still clinging on.
it has been a year of re-connection, of resurfacing.
i have been feeling a little retrospective, nostalgic and sentimental as of late. last november was a particularly difficult time for me and my family (i will not get into any details). i know there are people around us who are holding their breath to see how we fare as we reach this new unremarkable, but painful anniversary.
and for anyone who might be wondering…
we are just fine. better than fine, in fact.
DH and i are splendid. just recently he brought home a lovely bouquet of fall flowers; a small token from his big, loving heart. sure, we have our ups and downs like all couples, but nothing we cannot handle.
our boys are better than splendid. they are growing and learning so much; all i want to do is push the pause button so i can drink up more of their childhood before it’s too late.
time moves so quickly.
but, i welcome november with strong, open arms.
bring it on, i say.
