Mondays are such a kick to the teeth. Especially after a weekend spent with people who make you laugh until you cry and make you feel like the most important person to exist. I just love my family and am so darn grateful they spent 24 hours in a car just to come see me and see my most lovely Utah life. It would be an understatement to say I truly needed their hugs and loves. We shopped till we dropped, enjoyed out fair share of performances, ate until we had food babies, and laughed until we had six packs. I adore them.
Uh. Forgive me for being super cheese ball here. It was originally a joke. Then I liked it. So here we are.
Anyhow. I haven't really done a post I'm a miserable broken hearted dumb girl post so here it is!
CIAO to the bad times...oh hey there, how you doin to the good times.
Life is good. Almost surprisingly good. If that even makes sense. I have been so blessed the last month. Blessed with amazing friends and all around people in my life. Blessed with opportunities that wouldn't have come my way. Ultimately I've been blessed to be put back on the path I was supposed to be on moving here. So grateful. So incredibly and surprisingly grateful. Not entirely sure why I'm surprised. I know the Lord provides a way, always. He knows what's up. He knows it'll be fine....even better than fine. He's sitting there saying....hey you...come get your blessings will ya? Just follow these mountains...trudge thru the muck...come and get them! They are waiting for you....if only you will find your way thru the jungle...thru the tears. I am waiting.
Well here I am. I've got the eye of the tiger, the fighter, dancin' thru the fire... I am a champion and you're gonna hear me roar.
If you know me at all you know who the light of my life is, my main man, my main squeeze. He's the sweetest, nicest, funniest boy you'll ever lay eyes on. He also loves me back so unconditionally...it was pretty much meant to be. Oh my he is scrumptious! We call him baby G or bubba and oh how we all adore him.
We found out around his first birthday that G has severe to profound hearing loss. I think we were all shocked and confused but realized how much it made sense. This boy could sleep through ANYTHING...was never bothered by loud noises or frightened. It all started to come together. So...this sweet spirit became even more sweet and special and even more of a blessing.
He has recently had the blessing of cochlear implant surgery and we all couldn't be more excited for his new journey.
My very best friend, sister, and amazing mother to this sweet boy, has since started a blog to tell their journey through this as a family. She also wants to be able to reach out to those who are maybe going through the same journey and challenges, and also people who might face this in the future.
To read their story you can visit her blog HERE. You'll be able to see why I love these two so very much!
