Family: Nothing else really matters

It’s no secret that I’m struggling a bit lately.  I have a tremendous amount on my plate and it can get quite overwhelming at times.

Between everything going on with Gavin, Lizze’s health, Elliott’s anxiety and a laundry list of other things, I’m feeling pretty frazzled. I imagine most people could understand that.

There are times when I feel like no matter what I do, it’s never going to be enough.

What happens is that I get caught up in looking at the big picture and sorta get trapped.  Instead of recognizing the things I’ve checked off my list, I see everything that I didn’t manage to get done.  Inevitably, I get demoralized, frustrated and depressed.

In my life and the lives of my family, there are so many areas in which we are on borrowed time. That leaves me feeling quite vulnerable.

Then there are nights like tonight when I’m cleaning Emmett’s glasses so they’re ready to go in the morning and it hits me. There are more important things in life to worry about or focus on.

As I’m cleaning Emmett’s glasses, I remember some of the cute things he did today. That got me thinking of other positive things like spending time with Elliott before bed.  For whatever reason, the simple act of cleaning Emmett’s sparked memories that shifted my perspective and allowed a bit of hope to creep in.  🙂
