This morning I was reflecting on just how far the boys and I have come over the years. We’re not without our challenges and that’s okay. Last night, we had a family outing and it was so much fun. There was eight of us all together and everyone had a blast.
I can remember when the idea of taking the kids anywhere was overwhelming for a multitude of reasons. There was always the financial aspect but also the emotional piece as well.
I know so many of you can relate to worrying about whether or not an outing would lead to massive meltdowns later on. Basing your decisions on whether or not to do something, based solely on if you’ll be able to deal with the potential fallout, sucks.
Sitting here this morning, I was lost in thought. I realized that I took for granted the fact that we could go out and do things without having to put a great deal of worry into the potential fallout. I’m so proud of my kids and how far they’ve come. I’m proud of myself and how far I’ve come.
It wasn’t too long ago that I was going through a divorce and felt like my life was over. My kids were lost and in pain.
Here we are now, overcoming obstacles, building a better future together, improving the house, growing a business, and even extending our social circles. There was a time when I would have thought this to be unlikely, if not impossible. Never give up because you never know what’s around the next corner.
The way I see it, you kept making the best choices you knew how. No one is perfect, but you tried very hard. And now you all are rewarded with better functioning and things going a bit smoother. Hope that continues for you all, Rob!
Thanks Becky… Hope you’re all doing well on your end. ☺
