Dichotomy

Life has been humming along in it's happy little pace for us and yet I have spent a lot of time between a place of blissful nothingness and heavier thought.

James has been in a world of exploration, wonder and opinions.  I love seeing the world in this fresh way-- but have been a little distracted with some of life's bigger issues lately.

My dear friend, actually oldest friend was recently told that she wouldn't have long to live. She was a great support to me when I lost my mom as a teen and I think of her two daughters often. It's hard to know what to think about a life that is at one moment so sweet and pure and another moment so full of sadness.  Recently we went to a petting farm and J had the opportunity to feed the animals, something my friend, a hobby farmer of sorts,  would enjoy immensely.  Bitter and the sweet.
