A Shift in Perspective

What do you see? More possibilities. Does your new view give you more hope? That's the goal. Although it does not always work out that way. Sometimes a shift in perspective just makes you see what you've lost. - Greys Anatomy

Or maybe that shift in perspective just make you see what you have, the positive of a situation.  That does not mean you don't see the negative, trust me the negative is there. I think about the negative a lot, sometimes more then I would like to admit, especially to myself. Our family life is not easy, but we do it. If we had a choice would this be the life we would want for us, for our children, no way. Would Brian and I want to watch our kids suffer every day, watch each other suffer every day...of course not. But we can't change it. We know there is not a day that goes by when someone in our family is heartbroken...if we could wave a wand and make it go away, trust us we would.

We have done many things over the years that I can't believe we have done.  Things most people can't imagine, as the days go on we will continue to do those things-things which have caused a shift in our perspective.  Taking the time to make memories, laughing, smiling...those things among all the other little and big. Watching the boys have boy time. Watching the girls have girl time. Watching the kids have kid time with the knowledge that they really do have a remarkable bond.  Realizing that each day is a day to have a change in perspective, make the most of them, make them count, make the memories.

Claudia Rodriguez I totally agree, our family goes through the same challenges, it's not easy but we are so blessed to have 3 beautiful girls and a beautiful family. :)
Take care

Tamara Jayne Flax Marci - you write so beautifully.

Michelle Kampler Schwartz I hope that whatever happened to inspire this post has passed. ..for now. The ups and downs are hard, the challenges beyond unfair. But your perspective is a good one: go with it, cry with it...and try to find the silver linings. You do it all so well, Marci. You can do it. Keep going. Keep breathing. ♥♡♥
