life returning

A bump in the road of life can turn you in circles. Circles so wide, you wonder if you will ever come back 'round to normal. But a little bit of faith, tucked away in your heart, will take you far. It will walk you though a week of the unknowns. It will pedal along when you just can't, and pull you through the last miles when discouragement overwhelms. Thankfulness abounds.  After four months of healing, Eric returned to work. What was broken is now whole. And thankfulness abounds some more. With two weeks, an arrest & a vault into the back of a pick-up truck under his belt, life seems to have returned to what we remember... almost unbelievable stories, juggling schedules, rushing dinners, and swapping cars around in the driveway. And while I cannot say I didn't worry about this transition, and the toll it might take on us, now that we are caught up in life again, it seems so right. Like a conversation with a long lost friend, picking up right where you left off, hardly missing a beat.

Oh, the normalcy of chaos. You do it well, yes you do.

I'm so glad Eric is back to work. And I know the crazy of the transition is going to all be okay.

Can't wait to sit down with you someday for one of those conversations, heart-sister. :) <3
