A Moment to Reflect

Over the past 6 weeks I have spent countless nights hovering over my sleeping children. We have struggled through a scary medical situation with Paizlee and let me tell you, no one could have ever told me how much a parent worries about a sick child. I would have never believed how all consuming it can be. Ever. Laundry did not get folded. Dishes did not get washed. Mail sat in the mailbox. Phone calls went unanswered.

And then, thankfully, Paizlee got better.

And then I ended up in the hospital.

Whew.

Yet, there is a silver lining in my very own Lifetime Movie Channel drama. We found a renewed sense of family. We pulled together. While I was hovering over my children, I made lists of the things that I loved the very most about them. I remembered funny stories that I hadn't thought of in years. I enjoyed moments which is something that I haven't been so great at lately.

And that is where I am. I am working on my October layouts with a renewed sense of telling my story. I am excited and ready to continue on this crazy path that I am on.

I can't wait to share my layouts with you. Are you getting excited for the reveal on November 2nd? We can't wait to show you what we have been working on!

How are you?

I'm so glad to hear from you! I've been praying since I saw your post on the October Monthly Challenge thread at Scrapbook.com about Paizlee. I'm so glad to hear that she is doing better, and I'm sorry to hear that you were in the hospital! I'm hoping that things get calmer for you guys soon!
