It's been busy 'round here. And as I was telling someone recently, I don't expect or hope for it to slow down because I know it won't. It'll only get faster. I just hope to enjoy it as best I can. And we've been doing just that. Swim, track, baseball, 4th of July, cousins, Color Run, travel just to name a few, have given us lots of memories to cherish.
We also, however, have lots of uncertainty right now. It's hard on everyone....trying to keep track of where we are tomorrow. It doesn't really allow for planners in this family and that's hard. We ask....for faith. We hope that they have faith in us as their parents that we make the best decisions for our family, even when they don't understand them. And to have faith in us to keep everyone's best interests at heart....and to trust in us, to follow through and then adapt to any changes that come our way. I know this is very hard on them.
But I hope they are learning that no matter what comes their way, they can handle it and deal with it. And that when a sudden or unplanned change is in front of them, to adapt and find a new route as quickly and as painlessly as they can. Because I worry that when they are 25, they'll look back on these years and think their parents were crazy, unorganized, flighty people that always acted haphazardly. And that is everything we are NOT doing....but will they ever understand that? I hope so.
I do know that we have never stopped loving them, or showing them so much love, throughout it all. And maybe they'll remember that part most of all.
