“Whoever is happy will make others happy.” Anne Frank,
She's my oldest, a girl with guts, courage, moxie. This week she started university. It's Frosh week and she's participated in every event, every game, every activity. It's something because she didn't know anyone there, and left that first day wondering if she'd make friends. She has. She's happy, content, excited. And she's passed her excitement at home.
She's my youngest, a fighter, determined, a girl that pushes past fears, obstacles and apprehensions. She started high school this week. Her three closest friends aren't there. They moved. "Don't worry, Ma. I'll be okay." And she is. Came home telling me she's linked with new friends, has great teachers and is planning to join a ton of things.
They're happy girls - and they're happy makes me happy. Grateful this week.....
-that I'm mom to the the best kids ever.
-that there's life after trauma.....things change, get better, but I learned you got to want it....want it bad. I'm preparing to run some workshops and am reminded this is the core of what I believe and try to live. Grateful that I can pass this on to others who are where I was.
-for faith that brushes away the sad, the yuck, the residues of what was and incredibly instills hope...hope that things can change. And they do!
-for nature that shouts everyday its joy and peace. Best 'medicine' ever.
-for Him......opening and closing all the right doors and helping me to trust enough to wait for His lead.
Happy Thursday, Guys!!!!
