It’s taking some time but that’s okay

It’s been a really long day and I’m physically and emotionally drained. At the same time, it’s been a good day as well. We overslept a bit this morning but I got the kids to school on time. The boys are doing pretty good and I’m always grateful for that. Gavin’s doing well and he …
