The Halu-Halo residence is happy. We revel because we have realized that we have to when we can. Do you feel that way? Each of our families goes through our own ebb and flow. There are stressors at every corner, a challenge to overcome, some worst than others. While I try to stay positive daily, I don't pretend that our life is free of ebb.
Because without ebb, how do we know how to flow? How to see the little and run with it. We, over here, run and race until we perspire and are exhausted. This is why I write about everything when I can, or take pictures if at all possible. Capturing the moment, it is bliss.
A couple of great things are happening here at Halu-Halo. Hubby has reached a professional milestone that is momentous. As humble as he is, he just smiles and blushes, but I know that he is celebrating within himself. Praising God.
And this pile? Printed this morning, a great part of my little novel, tangible, ready for my first set of edits. Where will it go - who knows? Maybe just to my daughters' laps in a few years when they are old enough to read it - that alone will make me happy. But the fact is, my words are on paper.
We're all flowing with it. The ebb can wait.
