Cada libro es una aventura en la cual nos transportamos a diferentes circunstancias en las que aprendemos a superar obstáculos por medio de otras experiencias, arriesgarnos siempre a dar más de nosotros, a soñar sin límites y luchar sin importar cuantos obstáculos se presenten en el camino, un libro es una experiencia más .... mi nueva aventura se llama “no es por vista” de @pastorcashluna #vanya#vanyabycv#elartedesermujer#elartedesermama#blog#blogger
Last night I had a meeting with the preschool that the triplets will be attending this fall. I was already feeling anxious about going because Ry wasn’t coming with me. If I am being entirely honest, it had been a long day and I was exhausted. I didn’t really want to go. 🌿
But I went. I met many amazing parents whose kids will hopefully become future friends to my kids. I learned more about the program and the passion behind the teachers. I know this will be an amazing experience for my kids (and our family). 🌿
However, as I sat there listening to the teachers share their hearts and vision, I could only feel my heart racing and my anxiety creeping in. I kept thinking about how heart broken I am going to feel the first day I drop my kids off. Before I knew it, my thoughts were spiraling. “What if they hate it? I don’t even know these teachers. I’m sending my kids off to be with strangers. What if something happens? I won’t be there. Do I really want them in preschool? Maybe they aren’t ready? Have I wished my days away?” 🌿
I snuck out as soon as I could. I was running to my car as the tears were streaming down my face. As soon as I got in my car, the cries of the anxious moment came out of me. I was weeping and felt so stupid all at the same time. I could not control my feelings or the moment. My irrational thinking was everywhere. I even let my mind spiral to Charlize’s accident, replaying the moment I glared horrifyingly at her blue lips and held her wet body praying she wasn’t going to die. I was crying and couldn’t breathe. I knew I needed to get it together. I was experiencing everything I normally do that leads to a panic attack. I didn’t have my medication. I didn’t have my husband with me (who is great at helping me through those moments) nor could I call him. I had to choose to breathe, to stop. I kept telling myself “take a deep breath, or you’re going to have a panic attack.” I blasted the Jesus music on the radio at the time and suddenly His peace came over me as “It is Well” played on the radio. Anxiety creeped it’s way in, but I was okay. I am okay. Everything is going to be okay.
So the other night, @missjessbess and took off to the Grand Canyon in search of this viewpoint we had been obsessed w/ for some time. I didn’t know what it was called, so I pored over maps until I figured it out; we took off to pick up permits from the Navajo Office in Cameron, Az..
We walked into the offices at 3:45 pm, but I guess we were wrong and it was actually 4:45; the Navajo nation is on Mtn time. The gentleman opened the door for us and when we asked for a permit, he issued it as well as gave us a map with very difficult directions on how to access the edge of the canyon. we didn’t know that other than us, the canyon had been closed to visitors since May... (we found this out after the fact and even called the office to verify..)
We very happily took off to our destination and although made many stops along the way for photos, arrived to the edge of the canyon in plenty of time before the sun went down; we couldn’t see it because of storms but it hadn’t set yet.
We backed the Jeep up to the center edge of the canyon where we could sit in the back of the vehicle & still adjust our cameras.. we could see clouds rolling in but we’re hoping they would clear by the time the milkyway rose.. I let a timelapse run while I waited for the next few hours and we fell asleep in the back of the Jeep. About 330 am, Jess moved up to the front seat and I checked my shots for a slight glimpse of the MW... I got nothing good, but as blue hour arrived, so did clear skies! Jess joined me in this very short opp to shoot the Milky Way perfectly aligned almost west at the center of the canyon as the light was starting to brighten the sky. I LOVE how prominent Mars is on this image because of the clouds! Lower pano I shot at am Blue Hour.
I shot a 2 frame horizontal orientation vertical pano with 20 stacked images in each.
