i love that line.
it's from evening
which i thought was a good story to tell,
but that's it.
recently, i started thinking again.
about all of the things that people see/do/think.
the holidays are upon us.
and i am not speaking to my mother
at the moment.
i was thinking how stupid i was to think that
this was all i wanted.
to move "home".
i thought life would be perfect.
the kids could live near their grandparents
and i could visit with family and we'd all sit
around the table at holidays and enjoy each other's
from the outside in, the holidays are a
wonderful, exciting time.
but i think it only
seems that way
if you're looking through the frosted window
into a warm room lit by the christmas tree.
the smiling faces
just moments before were probably
yelling at one another
for being selfish
or just plain
annoying in general.
i'm just sayin.
but i'm a big girl.
i will figure this out
and live with the choices i've made.
so this is the art that happened after all of that thinking was done:
and then this:
because i need to catch up on em's challenges,
and because i need to end this post on a happier note!!
