Lyla, my light in the darkness

What happened to November? In a blink it went from Halloween costumes to left over turkey & pie for breakfast...which is expanding my waistline.
Did I wish the month by, hoping I'd open my eyes after a long blink and the dead father, shady uncle, sucky attorney, estate nightmare that has haunted me for 1/3 of my life would be over? wishful thinking.
So here comes December, another closing date in sight, another month of expenses to maintain a property that simply put: SUCKS THE LIFE OUT OF ME. BUT...it's also another month filled with joy..another month in my life as a mother. I get to experience childhood again, through Lyla's eyes..it doesn't get much better than that. There is such a thing as 2nd chances. I'd be a fool to allow the lonely, painful childhood memories or my present day nightmares involving that same house ruin this 2nd chance at brightening that darkness "weekend visitations" left behind. I'm ready to let my soul shine!

"He used to say soulshine,
It's better than sunshine,
It's better than moonshine,
Damn sure better than rain.
Hey now people don't mind,
We all get this way sometime,
Got to let your soul shine,
shine till the break of day."
