Getting back to normal but what is normal? I feel that we all go through life wondering what our normal is.
I have decided that I will always have a house full of yelling, laughing, fighting grandchildren living under our roof and that it seems is our new normal. What would my life be without my grandchildren and dogs and a dirty house be?
As I look back on my life and thought I had some really hard trials over the years, I know that we are never alone when we go through life’s trials and knowing that I have my family and friends around me everyday that I can go through whatever life brings me. I know that some of the little trials I have had are nothing compared to some of my friends and family.
My life right now is wonderful and my goal for this year is to be as positive as I can. It is real easy to get into the habit of telling everyone that asks how I am doing and I start saying this is going on or that was going on….basically I was always telling others about my problems that I have not given others the chance to tell me how they are doing.
I have a wonderful husband that loves me, children and grandchildren who adore me and a goofball for a dog that makes me laugh. My house will always be in chaos but that is my normal and I would not change it for anything else.
Whatever trials I may have I know others are going through harder trials than I can ever imagine and to those going through these rough times please know you are in my heart and prayers every night. And for the picture you see all I need to do is look at the serene look of it and it makes me calm. I love all my family and friends more than you know, Dahlene
