There are favorite parts of everyone's day I think.  Mine is about 9:30 when the sun fills up my living room and kitchen. Some of the annoying parts of the day are over, like breakfast, bed making, day starting stuff.  That stuff is not fun but has to get done in order to move on to the next part...which for me is the good part.

I do not take a room full of light for granted...for 3 years I CRAVED light to fill my days.  And when the light came, it was very special.  But now I appreciate it so much because I know what life is without it...yet I would not change a minute of those 3 years...
Those 3 years got me right here...right now...

A lot has changed since we got here and the light fills the rooms almost every morning.  My kids have changed...and they continue to change me.

I want things that I have not wanted for years.  I have been given a gift to go back and try something that I once gave up on.  I am an optimist.  I like to find the good behind what seems like a struggle.  This can sometimes lead to high expectations...but I like going into things with hope and expectations.  But right now I am planning and feeling a hope that I thought I left behind...

  1. I found it! I also took a blogging break, and once almost had my domain expire, so I know that panicky feeling! It has been a while since I have visited the blogging world, but my New Year's resolution is to blog again as it is the only documentation of our family's crazy adventures! You can turn your blog into a "coffee-table" book with "Blog to Book", and hopefully, I will blog enough this year to do that! Right now, I am catching up on my blogs I like to read, yours being one of them!
