Walking, swimming, celebrating

There are so many thoughts and happenings I want to share with you. BUT when I take that moment to breathe and to exhale my stacks of files of wordy words, only AIR comes out.
--- Today we walked to swim class. 1 mile plus 1 mile makes two miles. The weather was perfect- sunny, but not too hot; my mind was as clear as the blue skies. It's not a great distance, I know, but it is the act, the desire, the follow through that is the important piece for me. It is happening, however slowly: reason and practicality have started making some headway in my life again!
--- Maybe it is because the dryer broke. Maybe enough time has passed. The fog is lifting and the hinges are getting oiled, one by one.
--- Today is Judah's birthday. Oh my dear heart! Mama loves you so! I am so happy you came to our family. The day you were born changed my life in a way I had never anticipated. Your breaths were short and labored, it took a little extra time for my body to stop bleeding and start healing. I was scared when you went with Daddy and the nurse to the special care nursery. I prayed you would be healthy. You are! I prayed to be allowed to take care of you. I asked God to give me peace in my heart, to keep me healthy for you and your brother and sister. He did it all! Happy birthday, Judey. You are one spectacular two year old.---
 Happy Monday night and Tuesday, everybody!!

I am happy for you. For your progress. For your sweet Judah. And for his lovely sibs.

I can't believe 2 years have passed so quickly! Time marches on!
