Helping

Helping is a two-fold thing. If your helping is getting rid of unused stuff anyway. One, you find a home for the stuff you don’t use. It also helps you feel more organized and less cluttered. The other side is that someone who was in need of something is no longer in need. You have fulfilled their need. Often times it will be someone who desperately needs it.
I always like to give stuff I don’t use to those who need them. I give to the women’s center and thrift store too but I prefer knowing good and well that someone who needs something gets it and there is less heartache around the world that way. I like having directly impacted someone’s life for the better.
Just gave away some of Lysander’s old things. I say old like the stuff is barely out of its new stage. Felt good to help someone who could need it. To give it to them directly and know it’s going to someone who needs it.
I hope their son gets lots of use out of his outgrown clothes and stuff.

Baby life

Baby life is scary.
It moves along so fast. By the time I get the hang of it then something new comes along.
It’s like a trade off too. For all the more independence he gains the more I have to worry. Worry that he will fall or get into something.
How do I keep up? How do regular parents keep up? Parents who work together. Parents who aren’t single. Parents without chronic painful illness.

I can’t believe Lysander turns ten months old today! My little baby is getting so big!

It’s Not a Joke

lighting-the-darkness:

When people throw around the phrase, “Kill yourself” I don’t think they realize how much power those words carry. Whether or not its in a joking manner, those two words aren’t a shallow insult or funny joke. They are words that people struggle with and attempt everyday. It doesn’t matter if the person you say it to doesn’t struggle with suicide. You don’t know who is within earshot and you shouldn’t be saying that to anyone. EVER.
