Hi from Molly.

I have been pretty quiet the last few weeks. Some may not believe that I could be that quiet. Others check on me to make sure that I am okay. I guess you could say that I have been thinking a lot. Go ahead and make the joke that too much thinking can hurt ones head… gosh I have been thinking that too. There was a time that I would just blurt out what I was thinking before even thinking about it. I have actually taught myself to not be so impulsive in that area. I want think before I make any action. I am sure most of you have noticed that I can go on and on with different thoughts and some of them come out right while others can go in circles until I get to my point. I wish that I could just say something straight out without being afraid of what I say. I want to think before I react. Because some things can’t be taken back once they are said. So to my followers/readers I want to thank you for being patient with me when I am trying to think and write at the same time.

Being a mother to a 6 month old I have dealt with several changes. My son loves to roll around the carpet. I have noticed that he likes to go from one end of the room to another. Plus he is getting faster. Its like he is in front of me for a second and than next thing I know he is several rolls away. Makes me wonder what it will be like when he actually begins crawling. He also likes to talk in that baby language that can’t be translated. Lots of coos and loud sounds. Once again I am wondering what it would be like when he starts making words out the sounds. We just went through his first cold. (I apologize my thoughts have jumped around again)  Each day I have learned to do the best I can.   I know that when I look into my son’s eyes I can see someone who thinks wow I am a good person.

One other thing  I looking at is that my birthday is coming up.  Just last week I was told that I didn’t look old enough to be a wife.  It was amazing because it had been a while since someone had said that to me.  It was just the fresh air that I needed.  I have been told in the past that I looked like a 15-16 year old… I was in my early 20s at that time.  A decade has gone by in a flash and here I am… a mother and a wife.  How lucky I am.  Now just to get through each day ONE STEP AT A TIME…

P.S. I have started watching Army Wives on Netflix.  Oh my gosh such good visual therapy that show is.  I can totally relate to the characters.  More on that another time… M
