That time of our lives, living in Plainview, working full time, not to mention only having one child, seems so far removed from our current day to day existence. I rarely, if ever, think back to that time. It wasn't an unhappy life we lived then, but neither was it as good as things are now. When that very vivid memory of having night sweats while pregnant with Noah hit me, so many other memories hit me too. It's as if I could feel our old house again, I saw our old bedroom, smelt the odors that made that home distinct. It was a nice reminder to me of how far we have come in the past three years.
Memories are good for that reason. I can look back, and even on nights when I'm doing the single parent thing once again, realize that I love where we are now. Sure, I miss certain things about that time - family close by being the main one, but what we have now, with all it's trials, trumps all that.
Life is good here in Las Cruces. May I never forget how much we are blessed...
