Getting the pills down before bedtime is required the nights before labs. And because of this late medication time I know the headache will be so bad he keeps the eyes closed for our early morning drive.

keeping the heart is top priority . . . always. 

I juggle people making sure everyone is in place before the drive.

Charming’s car is down – he takes the truck to school for classes starting at nine.  But first drops the brother off at work. . .  running from town to town to get the job done.

he drives over a 100 miles this day.

Then back home to hangout with our girl by 11 . . . our girl the world has embraced – the girl who loves music.

and everyday she is doing more and more . . .   eye closing in. . . that smile widens.

 my heart rejoices

the little one in the care of the best Nana.

a sigh of relief

I feel familiar here

We grab that morning cup of Jo only for me and roll out back into traffic . . .  back on track.

Something strangely comforting here I say,  with this trip I feel like we are finally getting back to our normal.

He agrees, closes his eyes and says: “Thank you for driving me. . . I know the perfect place for lunch today.” 

I smile happy to be with him.

happy for our normal
