Went for a walk with my boy the other afternoon (sort of a date) and we took pictures while walking around the block in our neighborhood. These are a couple of my favorites... I'll share a couple of shots he took when we manage to download them (from our old camera) and I get his permission as the artist (of course)! Noticed this fabulous weather vane just a couple of houses away from our own (never noticed it before) and it got me to thinking tonight. Which way to go?
Every time I think I'm getting my bearings as a parent, I feel I or we veer off course. Maybe that's normal, but I wouldn't know. I hear tales about "normal" fairly easy to manage children who don't throw tantrums or lose their temper over the tiniest of frustrations, but these children I do not know -- these children I do not parent.
In thinking about where things are going, tonight I must say: I'm worried about the world, my son, my daughter, my mother too... but I also have some hope. Gotta have hope. And I've got something else (which I have to remind myself when I'm not feeling as though I'm good enough ... just... gotta... keep ... trying to .. do.. my.. best... 'cause):
I LOVE MY KIDS and MY FAMILY and MY MAMA too. As John Lennon and the Beatles once said, "All you need is love." Spread the love and do what you do from love whenever you can and when you aren't feeling overwhelmed! Don't forget to love yourself.
And don't forget to check out my Etsy shop (DID finally get it set up although only limited inventory currently) if you are so inclined. Pssst... there is a link up in the upper right corner of this site! Have hope and have love.
