This Is My Time

There are moments in my life, time seems like a dream. Minutes, hours, and days take on a hazy quality. As I wait for my child, these days seem more frequent than I like to admit.

When I step back to view the full picture I am struck by the beauty that has filled the corners of my life while I tiptoed through the darkness.

Books and music have effortlessly filled our home reminding us to dance and keep learning.

There is much to celebrate. For I am here and you are with me, and each smile and tear is our moment. Time has been kind.

I have not shared this before but since I'm on the subject of time here is a video I made three years ago of meeting my sister and birth family for the first time. For those that don't know, I was adopted and fortunately my sister found me in 2007.

Have a wonderful weekend and thank you to all my new followers! I am so thrilled to meet you!!
