Good Morning dear readers! The last week has been a whirl wind. My house and my emotions where taken over by a kid crisis. Don't worry, no one is hurt and mom and son are fine. But I am a tad emotionally beat up. I am repeating over and over in my head "Children are a blessing...children are a blessing." I know they are and as my son grows and becomes and young man, he gets to learn and I get to learn. We are part of a blended/divorced family and it is hard and I have days where I think we are failing miserably, other days other days I just ask for God's grace.
Last night Luke was at his dad's house and Tom and I headed down the street to have a quick night out. The restaurant had a band set up and Tom and I (who are ALWAYS in bed early) stayed out and danced and chatted with people and I could not have needed it more. The band was so good and I cannot think of the last time I danced. Sometimes a mom needs to be a grown up and just relax. Parenting is tough, I don't pretend I have any great tips except honesty and forgiveness and maybe a little dancing.
