Falling asleep at a decent time last night could of been a bit earlier but my brain wouldn’t shut off .. thinking of everything and anything that at 11 at night isn’t going to do anything to change it. Finally falling asleep I had the strangest dreams woke to trying to piece them together but then they faded like a lot of dreams do once your awake for a bit. Laying in bed and just wanting to cozy up under the blankets a bit more I closed my eyes and tried ..but knew it would only make it harder to get up . So I got up ran a brush through my hair after showering the night before .I walked straight to the coffee pot and then turned on the news to see that they were talking about the devastating Alabama Tornado that hit over the weekend. The images and the families talking about their love ones they lost … just broke my heart . In that moment all my little worries seemed so much smaller then theirs …. I pray for all the victims and their families for everything and everyone they have lost. Life is so hard and all the things we take for granted can be taken away at anytime . So take a moment think about those who have it so much worse . Take life one day at a time . Take life as a gift, love your love ones , hold them tight. Say I love you more. And just please take a moment and think of the people in Alabama❤️
the fan is humming it’s the only sound breaking through the quietness in the house tonight my hubby and his fan… the bedroom is darker then usual no light from the moon ,clouds moving in to bring some rain. My daughter is out with a friend and my son is in bed settling his mind down with a hot cup of night time tea . Hubby is fast asleep and I am not 🙂 always… I was just reflecting on the little things I guess when my phone went off a minute ago because my daughter texted me a heart because earlier before she left work she told me she was going to be a bit later she sent me a heart so I sent one back but I guess she was just seeing it and even though she is out with her friend she sent me one back still ❤️ so it got me thinking of how her and I had this special goodnight saying she was the one who thought of it ,it was long and she would say it first then I would repeat it back with her name and it went on for yrs and I always wondered when she would grow out of it . Well it took a class trip in Elementary school that she went on for a week . She was worried she wouldn’t be able to say it so I told her when your all settled in and your ready to fall asleep if you think about it say it to your self your part and when I go to bed I will say my part ….. she. Liked that idea , honestly I do not know if she ever said it to herself that whole week . I never asked because when she came home she never ask to say it just said good night … hmm funny what you can remember and still can tug at your heart… my son was more simple it was ,have sweet dreams then a hug .. hmm how I miss all those moments ..at the time it was just second nature what we did . Now its missing memories .. oh the simple things we can take for granted but then when time passed it’s really becomes a big thing and means everything. So tonight when I say my prayers as I drift off to sleep tonight I will make sure to add a thank you to god for all these simple blessings I believe I have thanked him for all these blessing but I think I need to thank him again especially about the little things . ❤️
Sitting on my deck enjoying no…. not coffee but a hot chocolate . I came down with the nasty head cold that is going through my household and then add it to my seasonal allergies not fun so hot chocolates been tasting good the last couple of days. Happy it’s a weekend of nothing planned kids are both working so just hubby and I home he is doing some long over do lawn work which he enjoys. Tomorrow the forecast is predicting rain so it’s a nice comfortable day to be outdoors. . My Son made it through his first 3days of his Senior yr this week I think he is enjoying it. So different from last yr they have so many privileges being a senior so it’s really different and layed back. It’s amazing how grownup he has become especially over this past summer .I hate to blink afraid time will just go even faster. Was a long summer and he learned a lot and learned from his mistakes as well . I am learning to back off and know when to jump in and be there for him and to how to let go a bit of both my kids and not be afraid to let them fail if it has to be . They both know their father and I are here and we won’t judge but will give sound advice if needed .Believe me we have not accomplished this new journey has parents completely but we are getting there one day at a time. Well time to get some things done around this house . After this nice breather on the deck.
