After losing my dad unexpectedly in April...to say these last 3 months have completely sucked is an understatement. Not only did he die- but I had to fly to Mexico to bring him home. Yes, I am well aware it sounds like a movie. In the words of a Luke Bryan song...my life has felt like "A ROLLERCOASTER!"
My birthday was Thursday....3 months to the day that my dad passed. My husband has been my rock...I mean really, you think you can't love someone more and then they blow you away with support and love during times of trauma. When you are going through something so incredibly crappy- it is hard to see the love that is right in front of you.
On my birthday, my husband wanted me to search the house for my gift. I was thinking "maybe it's under the bed...or in a drawer..." never in my life did I think it was an entire room just for me. He took our attic and made it into a MAMAS NOOK. I (of course) burst into tears. He said "this is your space." My space....and it is so beautiful and perfect.
My heart has been hurting for my dad that I forgot just how full it was because of my husband and son. During a time when life feels unfair...I am reminded how truly lucky and blessed I am.
Now get out of MAMAS NOOK....No boys allowed :)
