Stolen moments...

Walking the boys this morning before dawn was such a treat!  Sensory overload is probably more accurate. The half moon blazing bright in the early morning, early spring sky.  I love the differences I am observing with walking the boys each morning as opposed to letting them out in a fenced yard.  The beauty I was missing is overwhelming at times.

I can say with utmost confidence that I am a complete fan of three of the seasons.  I don't fare so well with summer, but that is strictly due to health issues, heat is NOT my friend. So the briskness of this morning after three sultry days was well appreciated.

I love living in the mid-west three seasons of the year.  After three days of strong storms, heavy rain, hail and spectacular lightening displays I must admit the clear blue black sky this morning was a welcome sight.  It's early spring in the darkness the sky isn't the rich velvet of winter, it doesn't have that heavy look.  It's softer, moving into a navy, it&#…

Sometimes you simply have to.  Sometimes when you stop, absolutely come to a complete stop, you give yourself a chance to reset.  A chance to breath.

That's what I have been doing.

I stopped.

A short while ago, probably two weeks ago now, I was at my wits end.  My Hubs was giving up, I could feel it, see it, almost taste it in the air.  The staph infection was beating his butt, his mental state was lower than I have ever seen it, the pain and frustration was wearing him out and beating him down.

I snapped.  I lost my patience and told him to stop, I am fairly sure that I was not nice.  In fact I was probably down right mean.

Truth of it is, I was scared.  I was afraid that I was going to lose my hubby.  And I wasn't going to let that happen.  I can only take so much before I push back.  Before I will fight the devil himself for what I need to make my world whole, to protect my family and loved ones.

Evidently, it was what he needed too.

His feelings …
