The photos in this post have sat here waiting for the right words to go with them. They are deserving of some thought....some emotion, but quite frankly....I'm just fresh out of both of those things these days. I don't know what it is about the past few weeks, but I am just plain exhausted. My mind barely functions throughout the day, and it flat out refuses to even try in the evenings. While my body is telling me to stop and rest, my heart is wanting to go, go, GO! I am not depressed....my emotions are stable, but I am just physically weary. I am in denial that it is the second week of NOVEMBER, and I have so much I WANT to get done.....so much I NEED to get done, but find myself falling into be bed earlier and earlier each night. I WANT to do more, but gosh darn it.....I can't.
So, I'm taking it easy....trying not to stress about all the things piling up, and making sure that I keep to the simple things. Cherish the moments as they come, and believe that in not time, I'll be back to my usual productive self. I just wish I could push pause on the calendar so I don't miss out on things while I regroup. Wouldn't that be nice?
It's all good though. How can things be all that bad when I have a super duper Sugar Bear giving me love and kindness each day? Together we enjoyed a local Pumpkin Patch the day before Halloween this year, and watching her heartfelt excitement was enough to give me a bit more energy to make it though the day.
She threw herself into all aspects of the visit, and her infectious chitter chatter had me giggling the entire time.
Running through the patch, looking for just the right one......
And happily embracing it when it was found. ♥
She is such a wonderful spirit who is always ready to help out. I adore watching her problem solve and figure things out.
Such good times we had.
YES...I was there too. Sugar took this shot of me. She was so proud of herself, and I was glad to be documented, as that rarely happens. We used the timer to get the photo of the two of us together at the top of this post.
It was a wonderful afternoon, and I'm so glad that I found the energy to make it happen. I quite nearly didn't go, as it was raining all morning, and I just didn't want to make the long drive.
But, the joy in my little ones heart was worth the extra effort.
Life is Good! but I need sleep. tee hee
