A few months later and more changes and adventures.
Less than a month after my last writing I found myself racing for a plane to Phoenix. My sister-in-law was on her way to the hospital to fight for her life. Today she is still working her way back to living and finding balance. In the meantime, I spent three months living with my brother, his lovely wife, and their three beautiful children. Our resident artist and full-on ham, my niece who turned 8 in October. Our resident brain, my nephew who turned 12 in January just before I returned home. Plus, my heart, our resident monkey boy/acrobat/climber, and champion smiler, my nephew who turned one in December. It was challenging in all the ways one could imagine, but together we made it through the hardest parts and celebrated all the moments that we could.
So now, I am back and jumping into life at home. Getting ready for upcoming events, filling my schedule, and playing with the magic that makes up everyday living. Dreaming new dreams, setting new intentions, and creating things only imagined before. As well as making selfcare a priority that was unavailable when others needed such care.
I am grateful that we are all still here on this journey of life together. I am grateful that my friends and family help create space and support for such endeavors. I am grateful for what comes next as spring is already showing us what is to come with a warmer winter than usual here in Virginia.
