It’s been a tough couple weeks and this week was maybe the hardest yet. Stuff with kids, especially one boy, has really worn me down and I’m just tired. But honestly, things aren’t bad. Things are just a little more effort. A little more work. A little more patience. A little more strength.
So I’m going to check my fatigue and tears and mini melt-down and express gratitude.
