Weary but not done.


I’m weary, but I’m not done.

I’ve cleaned all day. Literally. Well, I did take an hour Starbucks break this afternoon but other than that, I have been cleaning since 6:30 this morning. It is now past 11:00 at night. My feet and back hurt, and there is still more to go but not tonight. Tonight, I am letting the rest of the work go.

I almost let this blog go, too, but I missed yesterday.  In the big scheme of the blogging world, one day really is nothing, especially when I’ve let this blog stall for months on end. But, there is something far too easy about letting one day slip into two, and two days to role into three, and so on. And, before you know it, NaBloPoMo 2017 is over.

So, I was determined to get a post up tonight regardless of my fatigue. Well, determined until I sat down, at which point I started to mentally justify skipping tonight’s post. It would have been easy to do. Then, I read this post by my friend, Niki, and I shook off the excuses and wrote.

I am weary, but I’m not done. I missed yesterday, but I didn’t miss today because I began again.

Thanks, Niki!

A New Baby to Love

20171102_115956Yep, we are going to welcome another baby.

We must be crazy, jumping in again to potty training and middle-of-the-night crying. The physical demands of baby proofing and side-stepping the toys scattered about the floor… What were we thinking when we said yes to this idea?

But those tender baby eyes, when they meet yours, and that sweet smell just above their nose so captivating… And, that chance to help a little being grow into their best self and, hopefully, change the world for the better… How could we not?

I guess you could call it ego or foolishness, but it’s rooted in a simple dedication to do our small part to make the world a better place.

Arriving at 4 PM today, we will welcome a new baby to love and to coach and to train with the hopes of changing a life in all the wonderful ways this little boy will change ours for the next 13-15 months.

More details tomorrow.
