finding peace...

Sometimes life gives you lemons... lots of them, but you know in your heart that you're strong enough to take those lemons & make some mighty fine lemonade (or limoncello, if you're that way inclined). 
In the grand scheme of life, our problems are not that bad. I know that. But they're still there & they're real & they take a lot of deep breaths & hard work to get to the other side. 
A dear friend emailed me this quote yesterday, it's just what I needed to hear. Thank you so much Celia

Courage does not always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice
at the end of the day saying,
“I will try again tomorrow”
Mary Anne Radmacher

Amongst all the chaos that life brings, we're left to find peace & happiness in the everyday. Some days, it can be found in scrubbing your pots. Other days it can be found in a family adventure to the shore. 
We spent last sunday exploring the beach at Kilcunda. Frolicking under the bluest of blue skies & watching our little man delight in all the beach has to offer. 
Days like this day are so precious. I am forever grateful for this little family of mine.

All the best, Kitty. Someone once told me that all we have is the here and now, and your present looks so very precious. :)
