Never ending snuggles. The one benefit to being stuck at home on the mend. Thankful for my little snuggler here, and for all my friends who have been so kind checking on me and taking care of me. I love you guys so much. I am missin my Okies and my friends along the road… I can’t wait to get off my couch and back at it. . Another very important lesson I have learned in this trial is that you have to create your own patience and peace. I’ve never been a particularly patient person… And peace has been something that’s come and gone for me depending on what’s going on around me. . With this enforced rest and stillness, I’ve been able to do some really deep reflection, see things honestly as they are, and work on myself. And I’ve learned that I’m stronger than I ever believed I could be. Peace and patience not only come from within, but must be created. I’m healing on some very deep levels right now. . This last year has been one of the hardest years of my life. The highest highs and the lowest lows. I’ve been through worse things in the past, perhaps... but this year I’ve been through some things that I’ve never thought I would and I never want to again. I can’t talk much more about that, and it isn’t healthy to dwell on the past. We’re meant to process it and move on. But it is healthy to realize how strong you are. And who you are. . When I moved to Nashville last year, I was a completely different person. I was looking to go in the direction that I am now. Now I’m actually becoming that person. I know I’ve gotten all deep on you in an Instagram post, but I just wanted to share what I’m going through. . Sometimes people can’t tell from the outside what you are dealing with. I’ve encountered some huge obstacles and been dealing PTSD- that sometimes- I don’t think anyone can tell I’m dealing with. . I still have some loose ends to tie up, but I’m very excited for this next album cycle and this next season of my life.
They sleep like this EVERY night! Yesterday at Albertsons I went down the pet aisle and when we got to the cat products Isaac puts his hands up and hops out of the cart “wait, wait, wait, oh my, kitty!” He picks up EVERY toy until he finds the largest bag of assorted balls and mice, “oh, this one. Mama, this one for my kitty!” He chucks it into the basket and off we go. Burrito has not stopped playing with them yet. He LOVES them! Hated the cat tree we gave him, (good thing Magda loved it and ATE it!!) and hated the catnip mouses. Oh, but the toys his hooman buys him are golden. 💛 #snuggles#toddler#kitty#cat#bestfriends#catsofinstagram#toddlersofinstagram
