Love is at Home

Ellie has been going through a really difficult emotional time lately. Her emotions have always been a roller coaster ride, but they have intensified in the last couple of months. Some days I'm at a complete loss as to how to help her regain control. And then we have days where she is delightful; so happy and fun and silly and sweet and all the attributes of our dear girl I've been longing for. A couple of Sundays ago I made sidewalk paint and sent the kids out to decorate our new patio. Ellie called me out to show me her masterpiece and it melted my heart. Some days when she finally settles down and goes to bed I am thrilled to not have to deal with her temper and emotional outbursts for several hours. And I think she can sense that. Despite my frustrations, she knows she is loved. And we learn a little bit more every day.
