.....easy, breezy.....

....I think sometimes when I am at the end of my rope, I need this space to filter through some of the angst, emotion, frustration or anxiety so I am left with one big heap of gratefulness.....there have been so many circumstances when I have stated that this blog allows me to have my own reflection.......an opportunity to take an outside perspective and peer through the windows of my own life......and even in the midst of feeling overwhelmed, or negative, or pessimistic, I still show up and write......knowing full well that my rant is not showing my best self and that my words are being seared into an archive my children will read and know someday......but it's real and it's raw and it's part of who I am......and this blog is written for them, with them in mind, to preserve all aspects of our life today......the good, the bad and the rants, too......

....so when last weekend arrived and Brody was doing well after his mid week ear procedure, we packed up and got out of dodge......


.....there is something about leaving the tall buildings and concrete during the summer......we noticed it our first July in NYC when we used to escape on a Saturday to another extension of this island we have called home......the intensity level of life seems to simmer down and the decompression from routine sets in after the first breath of fresh air.......we needed this family time over the weekend and it was clear that our babes enjoyed the change of scenery, too.....








....sometimes a change in routine can spark a wave of inspiration to view life in a new light......to tweak our faithfulness, renew our appreciation for the small things, and to grow a more thankful heart regardless of our circumstances.......





.....we may move, we may not....we want to move, but our path to CT isn't clear.....there are a few obstacles that are still in the way and moving those road blocks is out of our control........the showings, the cleanings, the viewings up north have whittled me down the last five months......on top of raising three little ones, it has made me very weary....

.....keep my steps steady according to your promise......

.....so I sat back and watched my kids play this past weekend......I played......Stefan played......and it was just the remedy we needed for a time out......it kick started a new week that has truly felt like summer.....


.....easy, breezy.....just what we have been waiting for.....

....Amen!....
