Looking back on my last post, I am a little bit heart broken over how I let my emotions consume Christmas day. I am thankful for the time that has since passed between December 25th and now. I am thankful for the space, for the quiet, for the calm that comes after the storm.
Since Christmas, I have been taking walks, talking a lot to good friends and my sister (so so so thankful for listening ears), been to the emergency room (once again with Wes), been feeling supported by Winslow, been looking forward to good things to come for 2017.
2016 wasn't easy in many ways for us. Financially we had a rough year. Support wise, we had to learn to juggle 3 kids with no help. Emotionally, we have had to start from scratch in making friends, it's been slow, but I am thankful to have a small handful of people who I count as friends. There have been many lessons that 2016 has taught me, and I suppose, seeing that we are on the other side now, I am in a place where I can accept those lessons.
There are still a few days left of 2016, and I am doing my best to salvage what is left of the holidays and enjoy our time together as a family.
