Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.  Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.  The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.  ~John Muir
I saw this, loved it, and had to share.
It completely rings true for me right now.
Things have been pretty hard lately. We’ve been working with Wyatt round the clock to try and get him talking. We’re making him ask for everything and trying to really get those words in his mind and out of his mouth. He has been getting extremely frustrated because he is not used to having to ask for his “ba-ba” or his taggie. But we have been told we really need to push him to do this. Sometimes it will take an hour and a half for him to get the word “ba” out before he gets his sippy cup. And believe me, having a screaming toddler throwing himself to the ground for an hour and a half straight will cause you to go semi-insane. 
I just have to take a second. Pause. And remind myself that this will pass, it will get easier, and that right now we both are learning, together.
I’ve been calling and scheduling all sorts of different appointments, talking to all different sorts of people, specialists, etc. It’s just overwhelming. But we’re doing it.

Going out for walks together relaxes me. It’s good for me to get this exercise during the pregnancy, but it’s also nice to just be in a wide open space full of beauty. There is a specific place we go to where there is a pond at the end of the trail with a bench. And sitting in that bench for just a minute – in complete silence – clears my mind and empties all of the sadness from my heart.

This is just a difficult season and it will pass.
But at the end of these difficult days, I feel so blessed to have this family.
To look beside me and see this wonderful, strong, man as my husband.
And in the end, I’m thankful.
