What else? Too much to say and I'm exhausted. Working and raising kids is a challenge and one that I seem to be failing at despite my best efforts. I am not sure how people keep all the balls in the air. I am quite sure I have a few balls rolling down the street, under the table and perhaps one or two missing in action. But... I am doing my best and for the first time in my life that is going to have to be good enough. I wish I could share the perspective that I've gained with others without seeming to be preachy! I get why so many Moms try and help "new" Moms by flooding them with advice and tips. The need to want to help and share is great - but the need to want to "do it on your own" can be greater. It is not until you can look back and see the whole story that life makes sense. Cecily has given us better vision and for this we are grateful. We are focused on the right things in life and we are focused on bringing our positive energy to others without preaching! We definitely don't have all the answers but we definitely know that asking for help is the first step. And taking the help is the hardest step! And then the rest of the steps are much easier because you're not pretending that you don't need it! No one wants a pity party but it is ok to ask for help.
We've had a few families reach out to us lately for help. We want to help. We appreciate them asking for help. Sometimes we can do it and sometimes we can't. But I encourage people to keep asking. Everyone needs help. I want to thank my colleagues at Websense for their generous donations to Cecily's Closet this week. I am overwhelmed and we are all very appreciative. It has been so lovely to have the support from my co-workers and fellow employees. We are looking forward to our room makeover this weekend where together we will make a difference in the life of a little girl. Onwards and upwards!
