life moves on
I’ve run out of shoes; I should probably get a new pair. For the summer all I have is a pair of white sandals, some blue wedges, and sneakers. Three is really all I need - except when I’m wearing mismatched nail polish that my toddler gives me.
Let me explain.
the unexpected battle
I love Spring - and everything it embodies more now than ever - because I need the hope. I need the light. I need some fresh air and warmth on my face so when the days get hard (as they sometimes do) I have something to remember, a new hope to cling too.
That’s a hard place to be, discovering my own faults and failures that I cast onto her. Finding out that my daily battles aren’t always something else’s fault, that the issues of my heart are more of a consideration than I’ll believe them to be. The battles of motherhood might look different than you expect.
