Little Things

When your life is suddenly turned upside down with a diagnosis of special needs, you need to learn to appreciate the little things.

Some days my heart and head seem to be completely swept away with the heaviness of what life may or may not look like.  We are kind of in a holding pattern as we begin different therapies and try to figure out what is going to work best for Keller.  We are having many initial and assessment meetings.  I am tired of the assessing.  I am ready for action.

So while we wait I am desperately trying to hold on to some kind of normal life.  Trying to make normal life.  Trying to take hold of the normal life that is always happening but slips by when you only look at the big and overwhelming things.

So as we wait, as we process, as we accept, we are LIVING.  We take walks, we go to the beach, we make great dinners, we laugh, we have dance parties, we have friends around, we hug and wrestle and play a LOT.

Much of life happens in the little moments, those that often go unnoticed.

“Don’t despise the little steps you know you can take every day. There are tiny miracles in each and every one of them.” 
― Israelmore Ayivor

I am reminded of how beautiful the little things are.  The Prince family might be weary but we are strong in spirit.  And the laughter and hugs AND WRESTLING MATCHES are slowly healing our broken hearts.  Thankful for the little moments of beauty in this world.
