We’ve had a long and hard three or so months, but I am beginning to think that our family is coming out of the lows and moving forward again. We’ve all had a hard time adjusting, and shown it in different ways. The lils have been great, but I know that they are sad and confused by all the travel, upheaval and change. I’ve been lost as to how to help them at times, but have done what we thought was best.
In the past week or so, something has slowly started to creep back into our lives. A sound that has been conspicuously absent and sorely missed, their laughter. Not the little giggles when someone toots, or tells a joke, the belly laughs that leave them breathless, snorting and begging for more. It makes us all feel so good, and shows that we are doing better now. So we are doing silly things, singing crazy songs and relaxing more and more everyday. It’s so wonderful.
