And I'm glad you only come once in a lifetime.
This month has been hard. Hard from Day One until today. Finances, educational stresses, broken frozen water pipes, sick goats, broken washing machines, an all-nighter with 15 little girls with very little heat, and all-nighter with five teenage boys here at my house, more finances, and then this week where I saw my friends and family being separated from each other because of this crazy storm we had, and the stress that it all entailed, and I feel like my nerves are on static electricity mode in which they are popping and buzzing and making me hurt. Knowing that Mark was driving home on that ice and snow sent them into overdrive. And the fact that I have not slept through the night one night this month is wearing my down.
Some of it is temporal-the ice and snow-it will be gone soon and people are being reunited. The other stuff is just part of living in this world. And with a bunch of other people. Who have been cooped up together a lot this month.
there is this...
And last night Rebekah had her little girl. And there is such wonder and hope in a newborn.
But I am really looking forward to February.
