I see you. I see your tired eyes after working a 12 hour night shift and yet you still make our sweet babies breakfast and let me rest just a little bit longer. I see how your feet ache after being on them all night and yet you put the music on loud and dance… Continue reading I See You.
My, it’s been awhile… My husband works the night shift at the hospital, so I often find my overthinking self laying awake and pondering on anything from why I chose to eat what I ate that day to how can anything truly be eternal and how exhausting that must be.

I mean, yes, I have a large list… Continue reading Go On and Love Yourself
