DAY 6—Seeing the Light

Connor in the Sun
I’ve only got a couple of minutes today, so I am going to make this quick…. 

I never thought I would see a glimpse of our city life again. And today I realized as I walked in the sunshine that more than just the weather has finally cleared—my mind has as well and maybe, just maybe, a little bit of my spirit too.

I am not someone who does well with subtle, I need things to hit me in the face (sometimes literally) to get it. And today it did. I was walking to my neighbors house, someone who is fast becoming a friend {and I couldn’t be more thrilled!} when it dawned me on me that I was WALKING to someone’s house, not driving. 

I paused to look around and saw for first time my world opening up. We are surrounded by three families that I have come to love with children all around the same ages as the boys. And the best part? We are all within walking distance of each other, which makes quick playdates—for kids and adults—easy and fun. I mean how NYC is that?

I think I needed the sun to come out—after too many dark skies—to see the light as it touched the new glimmery elements of our life here. So I took a deep breath, took in the neighborhood and took in the strange sensation of feeling settled in for the first time in a long time. 

So glad the sun came out today.
