Life Continues

I haven't written here in a while. Things are busy, but in a good way. Monday I have Ramona's kindergarten informational meeting. And it's also time to sign Ruby up for preschool next year. And Eliza turned one. How quickly it all goes.

Today I got sucked into reading a huge article about heroin addiction. (You know how the internet is always doing that sort of thing to people.) It really made me think about how, though some things are hard now, other things are so easy. Our kids are safe with us for now. They are happy and loved and it is enough. There are so many scary things ahead, and all I can do is hope that I will prepare them for the difficult choices they will make in the future. Not just about drugs, but about people, friends, partners, jobs, school- everything. I'm doing my best to enjoy this time when things are easy in the best way, and hard in a way that I can handle.

But now I will reflect on these silly kids and their silly actions.

Enjoy that I can make them wear matching jammies on Christmas morning

And love every little grin I get from these little kids who have no idea how much I love them and how much they mean to me.

And they probably never will unless they have kids of their own. And I hope they can keep their cheesy grins and love of life.

I certainly have kept mine- mostly because of them.
