So, the past couple of weeks have had more than their fair share of tragedies and devastation. Many of them are personal for those involved, so I haven't really shared. But, the silver lining lies in the fact that, while I've been saddened, I haven't gotten really down.
But, for some reason, when I found out about the explosion in West, Texas today I started having kind of a panic attack and I could feel things closing in on me again. It was just kind of the last straw amid the madness. Then I reminded myself of yesterday's post and my focus on service and love. And it made all the difference. I still feel awful about all of those poor people, but it's not dragging me down. I hope that doesn't make me sound callous. I am affected, just not in an extreme way. I'm still feeling empowered to move forward and be a cause for good, as much as I can.
And I'm kind of really proud of that.
And I had a couple of great moments with Darling A today.
Like her hair being even more fabulous after this morning's bath. Love Love Love.
And then walking in to find her smiling in her sleep. There's just something about a sleeping baby... so sweet.
Amazing how such simple sweetness can counteract all of the chaos out there.
