"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2015."

Roan:  Still waiting on that tooth.  Fussiness and drool overfloweth.

Afon:  Some lovely friends were in charge of him for two whole days while his father and I got some important things done.  This was the pic they took of him at the zoo.

I'm exhausted in every realm--spiritual, mental, physical--and at times close to despair.  We decided with the agreement of his doctor and therapist to send Afon on a little trip back to Wales with Daddy for a month or so, so I can try to improve my health, rest, and be prepared to hit the ground running again.

Lately, I've been paralyzed by anxiety.  Little kisses of grace are like the puffs of God doing CPR: a photographer friend gave us all the photos from our session at no extra cost; this gracious family took Afon some place where he is safe, understood, and has fun; people I respect looked me in the face and said, "You're a good mom."

  1. You ARE a good mom!!!

    I want to smother you with love and affirmation right poor, dear, love.

    You're an amazing mom. And your life is full of overwhelming challenges..I hope you can rest and find joy again. I think it's wonderful for Afon to get to spend time with his Daddy and you can just nestle with Roan and mend for a while, without being distracted or pulled apart.

    You and your family are always in our prayers!!!! <3
