The winds of change are blowing in our world.  I'm feeling sentimental and scared but I know that change is good.  I know we are making changes that will benefit our family in the end.  But right now, things are pretty messy.

    Our family has been through a lot lately and there were some tears this past weekend.  Ok, lots of tears.  But when I was tucking Audrey into her snug aqua bed last night she said: "I love you, Mommy.  You always believe in me.  And when you believe in me I have confidence too."

What?  How can an eight year old child be so mature? She is a worldly, resilient, old soul.  Even through all the bad stuff, I know I must have done something right to deserve having her in my life.

After that, she fell right to sleep.  I stayed in her room for a long time snuggled in beside her, feeling lucky to be her Mom.


On the home front, the skim coating is done in my stairwell and hallway.  I won't bore you with another bunch of crappy blackberry photos.  It still looks pretty much the same.  Today the mud is dry and I'm about to have at it with the sanding block.  Then I can prime and paint.  So excited that the messy stuff is almost done!

  1. I had at our laundry room last night with the sanding block...not fun but necessary... sometimes I wish I could just pay someone... then I think where is the accomplishment in that?
    Kids have a strong and mature soul we often forget about until they decide to share it in brief moments which make our journey as parents the most powerful. So sweet is your daughter.
    Happy Tuesday!

  2. I'm so sorry you are having a rough time but what a blessing that angel girl is. My Emma is an old soul too. They are special.
