I crave the beautiful parts of life. Sunlight and laughter, friendship, flowers, and love. Deep soul friendships where you can laugh together and cry together with equal devotion. Love that withstands the test of time and weathers any storm. The things that make the painful parts of life pale in comparison. I’ve been walking in those painful parts of life for the last six months. The part where the love I thought was forever failed me fantastically. Where pain and tears were an everyday occurrence. Where I tried desperately to see the sunshine through the rain. So yes, I crave the beautiful parts of life where life isn’t so hard. Where trust isn’t broken and dreams live to go on for another day.
In the spirit of that I am not going to dwell on what this weekend isn’t, the anniversary of the weekend I got engaged last year. I’m going to celebrate what it is, the weekend my family grew by one more last year. We got this little fur ball a year ago tomorrow!
He’s a little bit bigger now! This picture doesn’t really show how big he is. He can put his head on my kitchen table without trying!
So, this weekend I’m going to celebrate the anniversary of Norris joining our family and celebrate my youngest son’s birthday and try to forget the rest. Wishing you all a beautiful weekend full of light and love and laughter!
