As the saying goes, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. The picture above is my sister and when I saw her photo this week it made me consider how sometimes it’s just hard to make lemonade – this week has been one of those weeks!
As I lay with my little girl and cried into her hair I knew it was going to be a tough week. Little S is reacting to more food and we need to take a step back and reduce the variety of food she can have. It’s heart breaking, it feels like 2 steps forward and 1 step back. I know it’s not always going to be moving forward and as our naturopath says, healing is not linear but it is so hard.
This week Little S has gone back to being unable to wear clothes, unhappy in the car and can’t verbalise what is going on with her. She is, at times, one of the sweetest kids that I know and it literally breaks my heart to see her spirit broken.
But we try to make lemonade and although this week is tough we push forward with her healing because we know she is healing and things will improve again and we just try to keep it all together for her.
I know life is hard for everybody and we want the best for our kids, all we can do is try to protect them and hug them close.
