Here Comes the Sun

What an amazing weekend. My kids and I are so blessed to have so many people we love in our lives - their birthday party was this weekend and our house and yard were overflowing with friends and family. So. Much. Fun.

Since my post a few weeks ago when I felt like I was at rock bottom, so much has changed. My position at work transitioned - tonight I got awesome feedback from the client to top off the already perfect afternoon. The girls are back in school and we're on a schedule, which brings peace and process to our home that we had all been craving since the constant turmoil and change that persisted throughout this past summer. And it's fall. I smell the football in the air, and it's my absolute favorite time of the year. The girls birthdays have been a wonderful reminder of how truly blessed we are - healthy kids, happy home, and love abound.

So, I didn't quite get to the drugs. And I may still need them - I'm not counting it out. But I definitely feel like I'm starting to come out of the dark and it feels wonderful.

I'm dying to tell all about the girls birthdays, but will save it for another night when I have more energy and time to sum up their last year with any sort of justice. Suffice it to say, they're happy campers tonight, too.


  1. No shame in doing what you need to to survive!!! I went on anti-depressants for a while after baby #3. And I've always been a "Miss Natural" kinda girl. But we gotta take care of ourselves so we can function for our families & lives. Not every drug will make you feel "numb" either (as mentioned in a different post). SO GLAD you had a nice weekend & that things are looking up. Now you've got that song stuck in my head.........

  2. So glad to hear the sparkle back in your voice! I really love the part of Good Will Hunting where Robin Williams tells Will "any port in a storm" because at different times we really have different needs, and it really is what is right for you in that moment, in that storm.

    Hope that things continue to look up!
