Merry Monday

Well, more losses for my kids makes it hard to see the merry in this Monday, but I'm trying. I know the losses lately are just material things, so I'm trying to look at the bright side of things. It's just really hard watching your kids get knocked down time and time again, especially when you know you can't do anything to help them. But, again, it's just stuff. (But some "stuff" brings about a lot of emotions and memories and it's really hard to let go, you know?) Still, though- just stuff.

Sooo...these are the things that really matter:

Knowing that, even though they've experienced a huge loss, my kids still have so much support from grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Here, Little Man spends some time bonding with his Grandpa, watching the Master's.

Watching this boy grow up, watching him explore everything...

saying so many new words and just being his cute, handsome little self!

Knowing that Eddie is doing something he was obviously meant to do (this is Christmas 1993, already saluting!)...

and even though we hate it when he goes on these training stints for months at a time, we know we'll soon see his smiling face again and be able to listen to all of his stories.

And having step dads, girlfriends, husbands and babies to fill the void after loss. Knowing they (and I!) have these new people in their lives makes me so happy. 

So, a personal post today. A lot of personal stuff going on lately and not much making in the studio. I'll hopefully get back to that in a few days.

Have a merry Monday!  Juli
