The Calm After The Storm

     This has probably one of the most hectic weeks ever. My aunt had a liver transplant, and so we've been rushing to and from the hospital daily, visiting her, and seeing how she's doing. Thankfully, she's doing much better and she's slowly recovering. We know its going to be a long and tough process for her to fully recover, but we're taking it one step at a time.


     After all the craziness of trying to see if the doctors knew what was wrong, to finding out she needed a new liver, to trying to find a donor, honestly i'm exhausted. Though the adults handled all that, we the children were left with the mental stress of sometimes not understanding what was happening, and our worries were much higher.


     What I love about this home is how calm and peaceful it is. Just from looking at the front view, I can honestly tell that the twinkle of the sun hitting the window & the sound of the waves crashing outside probably brings the most amazing peace to the family that resides in it. I absolutely love the subtle blues splashed all over, they're just perfect.
     This is exactly what my whole family and I need. A break, somewhere nice, somewhere quite. But for now, I think I'll find my own little piece of solace by day-dreaming about this home, about the few miles it'd take to walk from there to the beach, and about how less stressful everything will be once my aunt's fully healthy, and once we've all rested a little bit more. I just want the calm after the storm. We can't go back to before, but we've only just left the storm.
