Laying low...

I haven't posted in awhile, my mood lately has been a little down. I won't go into details, lets just say Max and I have been laying low...trying to relax - I've had to make some decisions that aren't fun, I've needed to keep Max close to my side, my nerves are on edge. I have been trying to keep everything low-key for Max..."normal" if at all possible.

Gabe does an amazing job of helping us slow down, relax, be out in the fresh air...of course I've been snapping pictures cause that is what helps calm me. Here are some snapshots I've taken:
Gabe's little brother, Elisah, on his pony, Babe. I was behind him on another horse named Thunder, while Gabe and Max rode Star. We spent the afternoon on a trail behind their house -
the bright sunshine gloriously kissing our skin and the gentle gallop of a strong animal beneath us.
My sweet little man's smile carries me thru these times - the simple things still amaze and amuse him...like sitting around the campfire at the Boat Club and finding a pumpkin that is just his size. We also met a new member of the Huff family, Haley Paige. Seeing a sweet little newborn baby reminds you of the miracles of life. The sound of her peaceful breathing while she slept made me close my eyes and savor the moment - they grow up so fast and it seems like moments like these slip away. I caught this sweet moment between sisters...newly united but with an unbreakable bond.

Stop, breathe, savor, pray...
Stop, breathe, savor, pray...
Stop, breathe, savor, pray...
This just keeps running through my head as I fight thru this darkness, as I do whatever it takes to protect my child...as I thank God for giving me strength for another day.
