I haven't felt like blogging much lately, in fact I haven't felt creative at all.
I guess it's been due to the stress we've been under lately.
The first was when my man lost his job, but thank goodness after almost three months unemployed it looks like he'll be starting in a new job in a weeks time. We've managed to get a few jobs done on the house but we've had to be so careful on what we were spending our money on.
The second was both my man's parents were rushed to different hospitals with life threatening problems (they live in Sydney). The one good thing actually was him not having a job which made it easier for him to go and care for them. They are both on the mend now and we are looking forward to spending time with them in September.
Then the third is my dear old mother who has been able to stay at home until recently when she had a fall and has since been looked after by family. It's now become apparent that she can no longer look after herself and will need to go into permanent care.
Life is certainly full of challenges and we feel that we've had more than our fair share recently.
We've cried, been angry and sad, but we've also laughed and hugged.
What I've taken from this is to embrace the day.
