Today we got our new car:
It’s a weird way to explain how I feel at the moment,
but it somehow all relates to it.
Our new car arrived just in time for our new baby,
& also just in time to pick up visiting family from the airport.
It always is like this, when we struggle, when we think that
there is no solution for our problem
life brings something our way.
Never too early, and never too late.
I am grateful for that.
When we were driving along the coast today,
to get used to the car,
Alanis Morisettes “Ironic” was playing on the radio.
it reminded me of nights where we would sing it to Emily to get her to sleep,
& that night where we couldn’t remember -that one line- , & called Katrin” ,who remembered it.
I am grateful for friends like her,
& I am so grateful for my beautiful family,
my amazing children, & my wonderful husband Anthony,
who gets up every night at 3am to rescue a scared Emily ,
& “twinkle twinkle” her back to sleep,
which usually takes at least two hours,
who then stays up just to let me sleep on,
who never complains, never gets angry,
who is always there for us,
never tired of going on long adventures,
who is right there,holding Emily s hand
when she wants to jump in the cold waves.
Who catches every spider & checks
for clowns under the bed.
I wouldn’t know what to do without him.
I am a very lucky girl.
very lucky, indeed.
