My desk is a huge pile of mess and my to-do list has caught up with me, but it's all worth it as I'm writing this post from a much better place in life.
A little glimpse into my calm from so many storms; my brother came home today safely after not hearing from him since before he got on a grey hound to make his long journey home across the length of our country, which was about 4 days. For my mom (who lives with me) those 4 days were so very hard on her and for me as well. The second storm that calmed was how I was living my life and in the end I didn't need to give anything up (like I thought) as long as I kept my life in balance. I'm an extremist so keeping things balanced will be work for me, but I know that with the help of my Father "I can do it!" as my son likes to chant.
I thought that when I would look back on my trails that sent my would upside down I would think that in the end it's no big deal, but in actuality it was rather a big deal. My brother could have been lost to our family forever, a big piece of me could have been ripped away if I let it. Those are no small things and honestly all I did during that time of hardship was pray. It worked, the end.
Now onto the fluffy stuff like adventures in Seattle with my boys. After Wordshop, Toddler and I drove to Seattle to have some lunch at one of my favorite cafe's called Portage Bay Cafe. It's an organic restaurant with some very yummy food, but it's only open for breakfast and lunch. Toddler just loved their pancakes and I can't get past the yummy Prime Rib Dip, yum!
After lunch we got to check out daddy's workspace at Amazon. Toddler just loved hanging out where daddy works. He felt like a big kid. Our next adventure to daddy's work we'll be taking the "choo choo" around Seattle.
At daddy's desk, playing with all of daddy's "toys".
Everything has once again been restored to a happy place!
