The leaves on Anna and Abby’s Tree are still pretty green. In the next couple of weeks, maybe even days, they will turn beautiful shades of red, orange and yellow.
Then they will fall.
They will all fall and another year will start.
Fall is a mix of emotions because there are so many reminders of the exact moment my heart was broken and it is filled with so many beautiful memories of our favorite season together. Each morning when I open the curtains, and I see the leaves changing, I can either focus on that one moment or I can choose to focus on the millions of other moments that fill my heart with love and joy.
Some days, it’s hard not to be consumed by the brokenness I feel and fight everyday.
Most days, I choose the path that brings light to my memories and my girls.
Today, we decided to celebrate so we went out hunting for special leaves to add to our collection.
I think these leaves were sent from Heaven and Alice agrees.
