go in...go out

I am writing this on the eve of Thanksgiving, and what has been one of the hardest days in my life as a mama; but just as minutes ago I have tucked in my boys, I am so very grateful for everything I have. For new experiences, feelings, and dreams going in...and going out of my life.

I realize it is not okay to live in a fantasy world of everything being lovely around me. I know I have to embrace and deal with challenges that seem to grow larger daily. I have to, because loving means it is going to be hard sometimes, and I have to love that too. I realize that I do not know why I am being presented with challenges, but I have to accept that it is all part of the Great Spirit's plan. I simply have to trust and love, and I am thankful for this to have finally sunk in. This giving in comes with benefits though; it means a weight has lifted off from inside me (as I hand it over to the One I trust in), it means new friendships, new plans, new dreams, and loving my family for everything that they are and ever will be. I hope that you, my family and friends are thankful for everything that you have as well.

An Astrology friend said thats the work of uranus and pluto. and expect more.
Be strong, and trust in more than you see.

I'm sorry you've been having such a difficult time. I'll be keeping you in my thoughts. Thank you for the offer for the auction, it was this past weekend. But it was very kind of you to think of sending something. I never thought that people that had never even met W. would offer to donate, otherwise I might have posted about it sooner. I am always amazed at the kindness I see in the world. Thank you mama. hugs.
