So, this really amazing thing happened this week.
I sent one of my recent blog posts to the Huffington Post and they published it. And all these friends and family members on Facebook have been complimenting me and sending love and it feels like a really great birthday, like going from celebration to celebration and getting piles of cards with little notes from all my favorite people. It feels like lying at the beach and letting the sun sink into my skin. It feels like being at my own funeral and soaking in all the really sweet things people have to say. Except I get to be alive.
There’s been some hard stuff this week, too. Someone close to my husband died. The kids were a bit spasmic. I worried about some people close to me.
Life is hard and good. Parenting is hard and good. Love is hard and good.
But right now, I’m going to do something I don’t do so often. I’m going to soak it all in and enjoy it a bit.
And then I’m going to write.
