When Life Gets in the Way

Sorry I haven’t written much lately. This has been a tough month and we’re only 12 days in. Our best friend’s (and Godfather to Sidney) brain tumor hemorrhaged, my Mom’s cousin found out she had breast cancer (her Mom & sister died of the same cancer), Jackson & Sidney have been sick and to the pediatrician/hospital more times than I want to count and then there are the holidays.

I keep wanting to sit down and write about life. How being a Mom to a 2 year old is so wonderful and all of the great things he has been doing. How I have the best girlfriends in the world. The kind who band together and will drop everything at a moment’s notice to help one of us out.

As soon as I open up my laptop to write about these things, Jackson pats the floor next to him and says “Sit Mama” and wants me to play trains with him. I can’t refuse because I know in the blink of an eye he is going to be 14 and not want anything to do with his Mom. So my blog has been suffering while I’ve been doing some living. Life is all about the peaks and valleys, I just wish my loved ones were experiencing more of the peaks right now. I’ll be back soon, I promise.

    Such is life. It’s been a rough month for us, too. I actually lost my godfather to liver failure on Friday and I’m flying home before the holidays to attend his funeral. Not to mention Bella busting her tooth today and bleeding profusely all over herself and me. Hang in there… “there’s a chance that maybe we’ll find better days.”
