Habit: Reflective Friday

Inspiration for today taken from habit.

A picture, a few words, a little mystery, that somehow form a visual journal of my previous week.

Have a great weekend, friends
Finding even a smidge of grace to be frankly impossible today.
Perhaps I should have thought longer and harder about the connotations of that word.
He said he was tickled to death. That made two of us.
Both were true, so I held fast to the second.
Be quiet, keep looking, keep walking.
There aren’t enough words to fully describe this week.

    • Vincent was at his first sleep away camp this week and it is the first time he has EVER slept away from home. He has been very homesick, but amazingly, he has stayed all week.

      We saw him last night at Family Night and he was set on coming home with us. But Tom got him to take a shower (he hadn’t showered all week) and it totally changed his perspective.

      It has been one of those weeks of growing and stretching and growing some more – for all of us. Hard to be in the middle of it, but so good to get to the other side.

      Is it Saturday yet??!!xx


      Hope you had a good week!
      Thanks for asking.

  1. Sending you a hug!. Didn’t realize this was the week of his first sleep away camp. It must have taken much courage and resilience on all of your parts! It’s almost Saturday and you’ve all survived. Much love to you.

      • Sometimes for me, especially after this week, it really can be both sides. Incredibly missing them while they are away and yet considering boarding school when they are so near! Ah, the paradoxes of parenting! Hope this makes you smile in the spirit that it is written…

        • I couldn’t agree more!

          It really is trying to find the calm center between those two real poles. Somedays this is easier than others.

          Hope this week is a good one for you.

          Let’s talk soon.

  2. You are all moving through. Perhaps struggling a bit like someone just learning how to swim, but your doing it. Staying afloat. Take it in. ox

  3. No one told me that you could count on experiencing so many intense, conflicting emotions when you became a mom. Unbelievable! My son, Jack (17), is of f at a two week summer writing institute – staying in the dorms etc – it seems like these rites of passages never let up. I find it comforting to know that we are all holding an empathetic space for each other and hanging in there together:)
    Love, Alison
