“One day at a time—this is enough. Do not go back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering.”
--Ida Scott Taylor
The Lappy is back but life has kept me away. I’d apologize but I’m truly not that sorry. I’ve had some things happen recently that have filled up my heart in a way that brought to life how empty that place of me has been.
Sometimes, we just need to live, right?
So my big news is that after two long years, my little brother is home. He had been serving a mission in Paraguay for our church and on Friday, he stepped off of the plane and back into the insanity that is our family. But oh, what a happy insane asylum it is!
I’ve always known how much I adore my little brother and I felt his loss keenly every single day he was gone but I can’t describe the welling of joy into a canyon of my heart that was so empty without him. There has been so much laughter these last several days. It’s like having lived underwater for so long that I’d forgotten I breathe air.
Perhaps it sounds a bit dramatic but if you knew my little bro, you’d say it’s not near adequate enough to describe the impact he has on our lives. Either way, I’m full of happy.
The other good news? I’m making some significant progress on my WIP and a new project too. It’s amazing what a little lack-of-internet can do for you, huh? =]
I’ll do my best to post more often but if you’re seeing less of me, just know that I’m either writing up a storm or laughing up one.
Until next time,
