What a tough week it has been. Losing a loved one is never easy and sadly, I have done it more than one person should have too. It's funny though..the feelings that come after someone close to you dies. I often feel like I gain a little more perspective in what life should be about and what I want to teach my kids. Such as, not "sweatin the small stuff." Another thing that is tough when someone special in your life dies, I notice that I appreciate little things that, that person enjoyed more. My grandfather loved to watch and feed birds..he would sit outside all day and just watch and listen to the different birds sing. Yesterday, while outside with my kids, I noticed there is a family of birds in one of my trees and I just sat and listened to them sing for a minute and couldn't help to think of my grandfather. There was no video game noise, or Disney channel commercials playing...just peace. Maybe I am just crazy, but in that moment, I felt happy and content. 
Anyway, I know I don't write much when I blog..I think its because often times I feel like I have a boring day-to-day life like everyone else..but I just wanted to share that. 
So thanks for reading:)
