For this past year I’ve reflected mostly on Baby A and this foster care rollercoaster we have been on. I talk about uncertainty and impermanence and how these have transformed from “concepts” to a sort of life credo. My life has had a sense of urgency to it. I’m not even sure that makes sense but I’ve been much more aware of how fleeting this all is.

That being said I don’t know if I’ve been taking the time to honor all the tiny and massive miracles that have occurred to get me here.

Like right here, sitting on a park bench with a cup of coffee, in the neighborhood where I live and didn’t even know existed until I moved out of Iowa. With a messy ponytail and a notebook full of ideas and heart absolutely full of all the feels.

That this life I’m living now is one I once thought impossible. It’s one I prayed for. Thank you @alchemyambi for this reminder this morning. That what I prayed for is happening. This is the possibility I’m living into this year. Every single day.

Grateful for all the missteps, dance moves and leaps that got me here.
