Hi everyone! We made it through a week again! It’s raining here in Michigan, and the house is still asleep. The animals have all eaten and gone back to bed and Ben is reading comics. I’m making pancakes for a small army, in anticipation of 3 teenagers waking up and beginning to forage through the kitchen. It’s pretty dang peaceful.
The week was filled with these intense moments of peace and intense moments of hopelessness. Not a lot of in between. So many moments of learning and acceptance and so many instances where I wanted to yell “no fair” and stomp my foot. Or throw dishes. Whatever. It’s a wild time and I’m glad to be here for it. I am glad you are too, or else it would feel pretty lonely. I’m going to post a recommended reading list later today, because you’re all coming at me with great suggestions. And the pancakes are maybe burning to I gotta run.
Stay safe and hopeful. xo
