Life sure does throw a few doesn’t it? Believe me, I have caught my fair share, some I have even taken square in the face. Nevertheless, I just keep trucking along. What else can you do? None of us have time for the much needed nervous breakdown we all deserve, at least I don’t.
My life revolves around two extremely important beings…my kids. They are the sole reason I am even able to function at this point. I know no life without them, and I strive every moment of every day to give them what I feel they deserve.
Unfortunately, life just does not always cooperate. By this stage of the game, I would have preferred to have us in a somewhat decent size home…nothing extravagant, just something where we wouldn’t be tripping over each other. I’d like to give them stability, and security, and believe me I try. It seems the only thing I am able to give them consistently, without any interruption, is my love. I just hope one day that will be enough for them.
As I take a swing at yet another curveball ejected in my direction, I pause. Things may not be ideal at this time, but I know they could be worse. So while I constantly strive to better our life, I do not take for granted the blessings that I do have.
My children are incredibly talented, they are kind and good-hearted, intelligent, healthy, and for the most part they are happy. I could not have asked for better children, and I will forever be proud they are mine!
I am thankful for the true friends and family I have. It is nice to know there is always someone nearby to lean on if need be.
Now lastly, but certainly not least in anyway, my boyfriend. He may quite possibly be the most complicated man ever (not that I have much room to talk hahaa) but he has the most amazing heart, and he truly cares for me and my kids. So even though we can relentlessly aggravate the shit out of each other, and I’m sure at times have wanted to simultaneously strangle each other…well, there is no one else I’d rather have the urge to strangle. 😉
In all seriousness, life is one big ball game. We battle through the innings, we try to get on base, and all just so we can get home.
So thank you, to all the amazing people I have in my dugout. It’s been an interesting game thus far, but hold on tight, I just may have a few curveballs of my own coming! 🙂
