I spent a lot of time reading your posts today.  There were so many GREAT posts written today.  Some were all about truth.  Some where informational/educational.  Others were funny.  All of them were inspirational in one way or another.  They were well written.  They had great content.  I was reminded why sometimes women (and men) stay in abusive relationships.  I was asked to consider my own faith, my own truths.  I was reminded not to take my life, or myself, too seriously.  I was reminded that you, the wonderful people who read my blog, deserve to have your expectations met when you drop by.  I hope I'm doing that, though I am still navigating and learning every day.

Nothing overly exciting, funny, or noteworthy happened to me today.  I found out I either sprained some ligaments in my foot or got a stress fracture.  This will slow down my fitness goals this week.  I took Kaia and both dogs on a walk today.  That was a challenge but it was beautiful nonetheless.

I think the one thing I most want to write today is that yes, I'm going through things right now.  I'm a new Mommy.  My husband's gone off to the sand box for awhile.  I don't know anyone here.  But, one of the best ways to get through your hard times is by helping others through theirs.  I would love to help any of you in any way I can.  If you allow me to help you in some way, really, you are helping me.  So what can I do for you?

Does anyone need an ear to listen?  A friend to write snail mail?  Or does it help to just listen to my various stories day to day? 

What kinds of things do you want to hear from me in my posts?

Hang in there.

After I got married, I moved across the country to a city where I didn't know a soul. It was really tough, and some days, I didn't want to step foot outside the safe haven of my home.

I'm sending positive thoughts for a speedy recovery for your foot.

You are so sweet to reach out to others.
I was a new mom once with a husband far away and living in a new place. It is a very lonely time.
