So many people use blogs as an extension of their journals or scrapbooks. Sometimes I'm jealous of their bravery to put their hearts on their proverbial sleeves and let the entire universe peek into their lives.

While I trudge through reality, I try to keep things professional at least on my blog. Why is it that real life isn't professional?

Life isn't organized into perfect little boxes. It spills all over the place in a sticky mess only to be covered in tiny pieces of paper and feathers. Once a good coat of flour adheres to it all making everything totally unrecognizable, you have reality.

At least my reality.

The good, the bad and the ugly. And sad, heartbreaking, anxious, nerve-racking, frustrating and distressing. That reality.

On the good side....Right now I'm in love with my two newest neices born last week, my sister's and my brother's new daughters. Both I've only seen in pictures. Both perfectly adorable. One is still in the NICU here in Boise and the other is at home with her adoring family in Utah. But I'm still in love with them.

Yeah, I'm in love with my own little family too. And all the people in the world who make life better.

But reality has been rearing its ugly head lately and I've had to really dig to find passion. I wish I could tell you everything, but the truth is, it's all situational. Meaning that it could all change. That's the best part of the defeating trap I'm in. It could all go away with a couple decent miracles.

So, hope you find some things to be in love with. And here's wishing for well-deserved, worked- for miracles. I hope you get some of those too.

If any one deserves one of those hard-earned miracles, it's you. *hugs* Hoping that some more sunshine pours into your days.

Congratulations on the adorable new additions to your family! ^_^ At least you can be happy that they are now a part of your reality.

Precious new nieces, how wonderful!

I'm all for miracles all around, I don't know anybody who would turn them down.

Thanks, all of you! And I can't wait for the chance to hold those little girls in my arms. I love babies!
