Breathe. And remember…after every storm, comes a calm.
I had to remind myself of that phrase this week. Our weekend started off with a bang and it didn’t stop there. Between a difficult matter with our son, our littlest one not sleeping, and all of that causing stress between everyone in the family, I was almost to a breaking point. At one point in time literally everyone was in tears. It was hard.
There wasn’t time to relax. There wasn’t time for blogging. There wasn’t time to spend an hour at night with my husband catching up on one of our shows. It felt like there was no end to the turmoil that had taken over our lives. I felt helpless when we were struggling to help our children through their issues and couldn’t. It broke my heart to see my whole family in distress.
But yesterday was better. Yesterday the clouds cleared and there was a sense of peace. Daxxon’s issues had finally been resolved. Hadley was her normal self, and at nap time she even decided to cuddle with me just like she did as a little baby; I soaked up every minute. When Daxxon came home from school the kids made Halloween cookies together, and all was right in our home. The calm came, and I welcomed it with open arms.
Oh how I wish these baby snuggles could last forever.
So just remember mamas, when things get tough and it feels like there is no end in sight…
