Goodbye May.

I got lost somewhere and forgot to make any posts. Sorry about that.  I am certain you all managed just fine without me, though. 

We’re an hour++ into June and I just don’t know what to say. Sometimes things just hit you in a wave and that is how it has been here.  We are the luckiest people in the world.   “Dear George, remember no man is a failure who has friends. Thanks for the wings, Love Clarence.” If you’re a fan of the movie, “It’s a Wonderful Life,” you’ll know this quote from the end of the movie.  If not, now you know.  But, I guess it’s true.  

May was a blue month here, no reason, just was.  And, every time I turned around there was a friend waiting somehow knowing exactly what I needed.  I don’t think any of our friends knew they were doing anything, but they were.  We were forced out of our box and, in return, had some great visits, excellent food, support  and, most importantly,  the companionship of people who know us and like us because we’re us. I hope I can give that back to someone else someday.

As if all of the above were not enough, this week, I received an email from a dear, dear friend who has her own struggles (real ones, scary ones) right now offering us a vehicle she and her husband no longer needed.  Yep.  She gave me a car. She gave me freedom.  She gave Andy freedom.  We no longer have to negotiate everyone else’s schedules to venture out into the world.  It’s an old car, but it’s a car with memories.  My older boys used to ride in that car when they were little.  It’s a car I used to look for anxiously on park days to make sure at least one sane person would be at the homeschool gathering. I’m still kind of flabbergasted.  I get it.  We would do the same thing if we were in a position to do so.  But, it’s humbling and amazing.  This gesture makes things so much easier and I will be forever grateful. 

And so, I’m starting June feeling unbelievably lucky.  I have lots more to write and I am hoping, now that school with Andy is done, that I’ll get caught up soon. In the meantime, don’t underestimate what you mean to other people.  The littlest things can make a HUGE difference.
