one step forward

we have had a heartbreaking week. i am not ready to talk about it. or blog about it. but my dear husband and i are taking one step forward and then another and another. it is a slow process but i am beyond thankful that we are able to move forward together, no matter how reluctant.

tuesday evening we walked past the door to this looking in at us.


you see here is our equation, martha stewart + rain = instant laughing in this house. just what we needed. do you notice the long piece of grass hanging from her mouth. seriously, martha stewart. seriously?!


i swear she is trying to be golden/orange like her brothers, sam and milo.


my oh my how we have appreciated these animals of ours. when we need to be distracted they will play. when we need to cry they are always up for cuddles and kisses. oh those big dog kisses are the best. when we need a laugh, well, the pictures speak for themselves.


today, this is the thought that is helping me take those important steps forward.

Just wanted to let you know, last night I actually thought "Kelsi hasn't blogged in a while, I'm sure she's super-busy, I'm sure Martha Stewart is taking up all of her time and patience" :)I really hope all is well, and everyone is healthy. I know I'm not the only reader wishing you the best, and you're in my daily thoughts.

If there's anything I can do, please let me know. I support you and adore you. Your story is important and what is happening to you is clearly a difficult reality to find yourself in. I'm sorry for that, and for your pain. I have no comforting words and no advice but please know that I stand with you, and will continue to do that in any way I can.
