We’re down south for a cardiology appointment for David–so we took three hours and hopped on a few rides at Disneyland. On trips David doesn’t always sleep well the first night and that was true for this trip. He’d been up half the night and I was exhausted from being up with him. Although I felt excited about a quick trip to Disney I was tired and frustrated with the circumstances. We got off Pirates of the Caribbean and I broke down crying–sometimes things just don’t go as planned. But after a rough start, I perked up a bit and we had some fun.
I love my little family. It isn’t perfect and sometimes it isn’t pretty, but it’s mine–and I’m thankful for that. I know looking at a few pictures on a blog can make someone’s life seem like a fairytale–and that isn’t true here. Actually I don’t think it’s true for anyone! I’m flawed and so imperfect. But there is beauty to be found. Today is a brand new day and I am so grateful.
