I have felt so heavy with worry lately. I am worried about my Grandmother who recently lost her husband of 65 years, my Papaw. I am worried about money, as my business is really slow in the summer. I am worried about my 37 year old cousin , who is battling stage four melanoma. I am worried about my mother who recently quit her job to take care of my 90 year old Grandmother. I am worried about my father and his health issues. I am worried about my sweet 10 year old dog, who has recently started suffering from arthritis. I am trying to stay positive, eat healthy (even though I would really like an ice cream sundae for dinner), and remember to breathe. I know life can’t be sunshine and rainbows all the time, but it is still hard to watch your family go through such trying times.
That beautiful sunset photo was taken on a recent family vacation. Oh, sweet vacations. I am already scheming to take a trip over the long Labor Day weekend. Life can get heavy, but it is important to look ahead, and plan for a little lightness, too.
