Well, it’s been a crazy busy two weeks for this Prairie girl lately. Family visiting from the Westcoast the first week. My sister and brother in law had their second baby this week. I feel that I have so much to be grateful for.
At the same time part of me feels sad. I think all of the beauty that has happened in the last little while reveals a shadow in my heart too. Maybe a realization. Faced with the reality of what my life was like before I became a single parent. The things that happened when I had my own two children and lost one. And I can not pretend or suppress those memories. I can’t even hold back the tears that I could before. Which tells me it’s time to let the sadness out that I was never allowed to express and if I did it was minimized and made to feel like it was ridiculous.
This tiny piece represents the passion and beauty that life can have. The fresh start of things. Also the end of things, the releasing of heavy things and giving birth to something new.
