The day after a dream comes.....well I was going to say crashing down, but dreams don't die unless you choose for that to happen.
So let's say the day after a dream takes an unexpected dive into the ground is always a challenge. It's hard to pick yourself up, shake off the dust, own the sting of the hard hit, and choose to keep moving forward. In most cases it takes a few days to complete all those steps and grieve the path you thought you were going to take.
The best part of having a family is that you have built in cheerleaders that can see the light when your eyes are still clouded with the dust.
Today has been a hard day. I just want to take the hurt away. But I can't. That's part of growth and I would never take that away. I know he'll be fine. I just need to be patient until he knows that too.
