Chubby Cheeks

Me (finding this photo in my computer files): Aww… Raven, look at you here! You were so cute! I think I’ll turn you back into a baby.

Raven: Mama, noooo!!!! If you do that, that means I have to restart all over!

That actually made me think. That thing about restarting all over. If I could, I would definitely go back to the days when daddy was still alive. Back to the younger me but with this more mature mindset that I have now. But then again, that would mean not having Raven. And I cannot not have Raven.

Daddy’s death and Raven’s birth made me the person I am now.

  1. Your quote “Daddy’s death and Raven’s birth made me the person I am now” resounded with me. As someone who lost their Dad too, it definitely shapes you. You look like an awesome Mom and I love the idea of starting over xx

    1. Every day, we can only try, hey? The whole starting over thing. But the beauty of it is that we don’t start from scratch. We start just a little bit wiser than we were yesterday. So our pain does serve a higher purpose. But only if we allow it to crack us open to let the light in.

      Omg. Emo much? lol. Sorry.
