The difference 5 months makes.
October 2019 – March 2020
Grant watched his babies grow up on FaceTime; lots of tears shed on both ends, wishing he could hold his babies. We know how blessed we are that we had the ability to talk and connect daily, but man, it didn’t change the fact that it was so hard. So so hard. My heart has grown a million times over for single parents, solo parents, and all the circumstances that make it so the burden falls on you and only you sometimes. You are heroes. And to the parents that have to be away, beyond your control, you are heroes too. When I was having a hard day with the kids, sometimes I just wanted to run away. And all Grant wanted to do was to be thrown into that bad day and make it better. It’s hard for both parents, in its own way. Goodness, I could go on and on, but today I am so grateful to be together.
