I am a 40 year old, wife and mother of two. By most accounts, I have it all. And although I truly believe I am one of the luckiest people in the world, surrounded by love, success and happiness, I complain. A lot. Maybe it is my keen ability to identify the absurd in life. Or perhaps it is a deeper calling for liberty and justice for all. More likely, it is the fact that my day to day routine with my loving husband, two amazing children, my emotionally needy dog and mean as hell cat is a lot harder than I ever dreamed it would be. Whatever the case may be, the crystal clear afterthoughts are when I am able to savor how rich family life is and what a gift I have been given. After the chaos subsides.
I hope that in sharing these stories, we can all share a laugh and come to realize how an imperfect ride can lead us to what is most perfect – memories made with our families.
