5:30 AM, Nice to See You Again

It's 5:30.  I've been up since 4:30.  Thinking.  I thought the other day that I think too much.  Sometimes, I wish I could quiet my mind.  I have a thinking problem.

I was remembering how we used to go to Harper's Ferry, just Hubby and me, to walk the trails.  We would climb up the mountain, our leg muscles feeling sore towards the ascent to the top.  We'd break through the trees, and the sight of the little town by the river down below was breathtaking.  Awe-inspiring and wonderful.  So much has happened since then.

We were better when we were by ourselves, free to do what we wanted with each other.  Now we're together but apart.  I've been trying so hard to reach that mountain peak again.  I've been trying so hard to take a huge gulp of that fresh air.  I know it's waiting for me at the top: the feeling of togetherness. There's something so magical about being able to look down and see a whole town laid out for you.  Wouldn't it be amazing to see your life in that way?

  1. With my big girls, I remember getting lost in the shuffle. It wasn't until my hubby got injured (back surgery/recovery) that we reconnected like it used to be before the girls. We started taking time for ourselves...beginning with a lunch together without kiddos every couple of weeks...to discuss stuff non-kid related. Eventually, we ended up having yet another family (and more happy years) since then. Sometimes it's difficult seeing (or feeling) what is important...but you have to sidestep the holes to see the path to get to the top again. Baby steps. Good luck!
