love, life, and the pursuit of liberation
it’s hard to believe that in 2 weeks, our life is going to be so very different. we will be vagabonds of sorts all summer, we won’t have cars, we will then be living in campus housing, we’ll both be in school, i will be at home with little a, and A will be teaching. if you would have asked me 2 years ago when i was first settling into dallas if my life would look like this, i would have looked at you half-crazy.
little a is changing just as rapidly as our life. yesterday she started reaching for things and at first, i thought it was just a coincidence. but as i kept rattling and playing with her jacques the peacock, she continued reaching for it. today during tummy time, she reached for this little monkey thing that is suspended above the mat. i am in awe that this is my daughter–our little girl.
so right now, i sit here waiting for someone else to arrive to pick up one of the last pieces of furniture and vacillate between excitement and anxiety. i know that all things eventually lead to good and i’m confident that we’re clearly on that road.
