I didn't think I would feel that way.
I think the above phrase is the signature phrase of this entire experience so far. I'm hit constantly with things I didn't expect, didn't know I'd experience, for which I didn't prepare. It's a wild ride. And it's constant. These times with family are rare and welcomed reprieves.
I took a long, hot bath. I cooked in a big kitchen. I shaved my legs in what felt like a giant shower. I lounged on a couch and Jonah could fit next to me.
We knew what we were in for most every day. It felt like a calm on a stormy sea.
So. nice. to be casual and able to let down awhile.
Thank goodness for family.
