My house is a mess.
There is text book reading to be done.
My husband needs to be picked up from work.
Rent needs to be paid.
My daughter needs to be fed.
There is laundry to be folded.
I have to stop myself from saying, "I'll be happy when..." I am here NOW. Life is not ruffles and frills. Real life is not bright lights and glamour. Life is waking up to dirty diapers and pile of dishes. Life is trying to enjoy the five minutes you have with your husband before you pass out from exhaustion. Things will NEVER be perfect. Things will most likely get harder. But I have Cassidy to hold my hand and Saylor to make me laugh. We are taking things one day at a time and we've made it this far.
I did my best. And that's good enough for me.
