It's all a balancing act. Isn't it?
The sun shines brightly and it can be a beacon of hope, or a blinding light. We teeter like Kate here on the bricks a cool breeze on our backs. A good stiff wind might blow us over but we continue on balancing our lives like everyone around us.
Most of the time we don't even recognize that we are doing it. Much like the 'Cat in the Hat' with his dish, and his spoon, his cup and saucer, cake and candles and teapot with a fish. We've learned from an early age that we walk this way and when something knocks us off balance we blink our eyes a few times, shrug our shoulders, regain our composure and right ourselves - beginning again.
I know I haven't posted a lot the last few days. I've honestly been kind of avoiding it. The kids have really needed me. I've needed me. I'm still dealing with a little grief. Not a loss of a person, thankfully. Medical issues. Things I feel somewhat responsible for. As if I could control anything like that. I suppose just because I have my own medical issues and now my kids have issues.
We are on a path, it's a narrow one and sometimes I feel like the sun is blinding me, and other times it guides me. The other day, I fell. My sisters helped me up. They stood beside me. Supported me. I'm so glad that even though I wasn't given true sisters that I was able to bond with and find my own, and I'm glad that my children have sisters, and brothers.
