I am willing to fall Because I have learned how to rise.
I craft Love from heartbreak, Compassion from shame, Grace from disappointment, Courage from failure.
I am among the brave and brokenhearted, and I am rising strong.

Note to Self: Don't shop in sandals
the mistake of going grocery shopping in wedge sandals; super cute and
super painful--not that anyone was looking at my feet with my very
distracting toddler. Lana refused to sit in the cart, twisting into
weird contortions and repeating "no, no, no!" every time I tried to sit
her in it. Instead, she insisted she be able to push the cart where she
pleased or run free through the store, which is in chaos because it's
being remodeled and we spent way too long to find only half the things
on our list. (Mostly I bought several varieties of ice cream treats.) We
lost a baby shoe somewhere along the way, but luckily it was returned
before we had to backtrack through the whole store by some kind lady who
got only a harried "thanks SO much" while I struggled to wrangle the
debit card away from the toddler. I'm thinking it might be time to start grocery shopping baby-free... Is that allowed?
