This week has been one of storms & plenty of rain. And the storms were not just those occuring outside.
For those who visit my blog regularly, you will have noticed that I have only posted a few times this week (instead of the usual 10+ link ups I enter). Over the last few months, life in our home has been incredibly stressful for most of us. Extreme stress plays havoc with my heart, further reduces my inability to sleep, severely affects my pain levels and my happiness. Consequently, it's been harder and harder to find inspiration for my photography as well. The stress has also affected my daughter's recovery.
So this Tuesday evening, Michael determined to make an huge change in our home for the benefit of those of us who are happy to live peacefully. The atmosphere changed in our home almost immediately. It's amazing the difference one person can make when they determine to fight against authority because they want everything their own way. Some times children don't appreciate how blessed they are until they move out. The grass isn't always greener on the other side...
The weather is still stormy, but our home isn't. The sunsets are always impressive after a storm... These were the views from our street on Thursday evening.
