There are many highs and lows that you experience during your life time.
It’s kind of natural and really if you didn’t experience them I’d question your humanity. Some days things will be going really well, other days not so much. Maybe everything is still going well but you personally feel like you’re in a bit of a slump.
I’m in slump mode right now. There is absolutely no reason for this. None at all – everything is great, but I can’t help but feel snappy with the kids and heavy hearted. I wish I could figure out what it was that’s causing it, but for now I just feel a bit ugh. I feel like maybe I say that all the time, maybe I do. Maybe this is the new normal. Maybe the Roaccutane is catching up to me. Maybe, maybe, maybe.
Despite all of this and all the other ups and downs I’ve experienced and that we go through as a family every day, we do it as a family. Not just our immediate family, but our parents and siblings play an important role in our lives too. I’m not sure what I would do without them.
Recently we celebrated my Mom In Laws 60th birthday with a 50’s themed party. I had a chance to edit all the pictures the other night and I just felt totally overwhelmed at how much I love these people. How much of my life they influence and how much we would miss them if they were gone.
It’s easy to say that we loved someone after they are taken away from us, but it’s hard to remember to tell them how much we love them while they are still with us. I’m reminded of this every time that I think of my Dad who passed away over a year ago. It’s one of the many things that I’m trying to change in my approach to life.
So here’s to telling our loved ones that we love them while they are still with us.
