Journaling: This afternoon I had one of those "aha!" moments when something clicked in my head with realisation. I have long wished for a sibling for Jamie. I've had a vision of two children, running around in the backyard laughing and giggling. I has been a source of grief, that the vision in my head will never be a reality. I have longed to hear that laughing and giggling twosome and I greived to see my lonesome boy by himself. But today, I had a realisation. As I stood in my kitchen preparing snacks I looked out across the yard to see Jamie playing with his friend who had come over for a playdate. I heard their laughter and gleeful giggles float across the garden. And in that moment my mental image and my reality aligned. Wow. The Universe does deliver! Just not always in the preconceived manner we may be holding on to. Sometimes what we want is really there in front of us all the while.
The journaling is taken from my blog post here.
It has been a hard thing to let go of my dream of having more than one child.
But slowly I feel myself moving forward, and out of that space I was in for a while. Gradually I make new plans and set new goals. And then, like this particular day, I find myself not at all sad, and in fact whole heartedly grateful. It's a good place to be.
