This is me this morning. I was willing myself to have a good day. I've come to realize that so many circumstances in life are a struggle. Even happiness can be a struggle. There's a time to retreat and there's a time to press forward. I don't have the luxury of going to a still quiet place to regroup right now. So I celebrate each accomplishment I lean in...dig deep and fight. My soul is a kiln bubbling with hope and goals. I feel them boiling and rising. Now my day is coming to a close. I am content. I did my best. I didn't let up. I accomplished my goals. It wasn't an easy day. But it turned out to be a good day. And that makes me happy.

I'm almost 40 years old, and just now understanding my worth. You best believe I'll do my best to impart full knowledge to the young ladies in my sphere of influence. I'm old enough to know better. And finally old and wise enough to care.

I wrote a post a few weeks back on the art of taking black and white photos. I decided to change this picture of my husband and I today, into black and white. I must say I LOVE what I'm seeing consistent growth in the midst of challenge. I see more strength which I am extremely happy to observe. The eyes... well mine can't lie...
To show my 80's baby 90's lady roots.... "Don't call it a comeback! I was here all the time." ;)

I had an opportunity to reconnect with family. Some of whom I had not seen in over 10 years. My cousin and his adorable fiancée had an engagement party. We used it as an opportunity to get together to celebrate instead of waiting until the next time we have to mourn. I'm feeling so happy. Love in it's many forms is a wonderful thing. I'm happy our family is looking for occasions to celebrate love.
