If you're a regular reader here, you'll know it's sort of a massive understatement that I choose to focus on the positive at Miles and Laurel. My goal with this blog was never to document comprehensively the highs and lows of everything that happened every day, and I certainly don't mean to present the idea that all my days are bright, all the time. Rather, I use this space to collect the bright spots that exist in each day, no matter how small the bright spot or how difficult the day.
The last few months have been difficult for many dear people in my life, for different reasons. Out of respect for their privacy, I usually didn't write directly about these circumstances on this public blog, even as my heart was going out to them.
Today I will be more direct because anything else feels inappropriate. We found out yesterday that Josh's mom will be dealing with a significant health issue this year and begin treatment for it immediately. A plan is in place. We will do everything we can, in Colorado and from Minnesota, to support her and the rest of the family.
That is what's happening; this is the challenge our family is facing.
