My Village.

April 27, 2018

It is an incredible journey that I find myself on each and every single day. I have the most joyful and exciting days, followed by days filled with the deepest sorrows, this is my beautiful path. Somewhere, many years ago God chose to expose me to the controlled chaos that was Kaycee Wyoming. That summer my life was completely altered. Now 11 years later I am a controller of chaos myself. My heart and home are full, always. With this comes more struggles then I will ever naively prepare for. These challenges pose threats and my village comes in by storm and takes each challenge by the horns and thorns.

Tonight my village chief is my mom, Rebecca. Tonight when I was in dire need of groceries but with lots of tiny humans, one particularly not feeling well, and the “good” grocery store being a 20 minute drive each way, I asked a sitter to come stay with tiny humans so I could sneak out after bed time and grab the essentials.

-Pause-

Dear Sweet Sitter, I know and fully understand why you canceled and I still love you 110%!

-Resume-

Sitter cancelled at 7:30pm, just late enough I cannot load cranky sick children up into the car and manage an hour long shopping trip without expecting meltdowns… We will resort to mac and cheese and canned chicken before I do that intentionally.. Nonetheless they cancelled and I still needed to shop. My mother came with no hesitation or sound of frustration. She also assisted a few of my tiny humans in chores.. meaning she basically folded 7 baskets worth of clean laundry. SEVEN loads at least. Bless her soul and how she makes my life smoother. Today has been long. I am finally winding down and preparing to do some work when I fully absorb what I am feeling. I am surrounded by the feeling of support. I am not ever drowning, because my village always shows up with a couple tubes and a floating cooler so we can enjoy the ride!

Thank you for all the clean dishes and the folded laundry! This helps more then I can ever express!
