It’s not always easy. But it’s always worth it.

Under aching bones and tired limbs.  Backs that strain under growing weight.  

Crying alongside you some days.  Lots of days.

Angry and bitter even.

But deep breath.  Get up
and keep going.

Both of us.  Together.

Always we will do it together.

Because it’s what we do.

And we do it with love.

And pride.  And joy.  And humble awe of the privilege.

Because that’s My Girl.

And I love her something fierce.

I'm a mom to four. A wife to one. I believe in story. I love telling you about mine and would love to hear yours. There's really no sense in wasting our suffering and not sharing in each other's joy. We're all in this together...even if it doesn't always feel like it.
