Falling in with Fall

I love fall. Always have. However, Fall has also always been a difficult time for me. I don’t know why, perhaps it’s the decline of the sunshine, who knows.

We had a baby hawk visit us this morning. My youngest and I got to see him pretty close up, too. It was pretty awesome.

Things with the kids have been better since our summer visit to see family. It was a much needed change of pace for us all. I was sort of amazed at how the significant drop in stress, the increase in rest, and an amazing amount of emotional support helped us all.

The drop in my pain and therefore exhaustion was fantastic. It’s definitely still a major part of my life, and as far as anyone knows fibromyalgia will always be a major part of my life. And therefore my family’s lives.

For a little while, we all felt a little more normal. All that life around us, making happy memories with family, it was so.. replenishing.
