  • the leaves are beginning to fall...
  • my oldest son is leaving for college in a week. I need to be ready.
  • my youngest son is learning to drive. I need to be ready.
  • the realization that my boys are men...that they will soon move on...is unfathomable.
  • and the realization that I am halfway through my life...is a sobering thought...but one that I am trying to embrace and learn to live optimistically...shifting gears and trying to figure out how to live it out well.
  • I've been fighting tears for days...weeks...today, yesterday, (for the next week? or two?) they are proving inevitable. 
  • Life isn't easy, is it? 
No. Life isn't easy. But it's good. And full of good things. 
Doing my best to stay focused.
