Today has started as a quiet day. And quiet days are nice to sit and think about what you are doing with your life and figuring out if you are going down the right path or not. This morning seemed a bit tough to understand if Elizabeth and I were making the right decisions with out futures. Things seem so skewed on what is right and wrong anymore. What is the right choice? Is it as subjective as we think? Perhaps but I'm not really going to go into existential thoughts here.
Merely what I am doing is rambling in hopes that maybe I can come to a clear though as to where I am at, and maybe inspire a few people who are in the same situation.
After eating breakfast this morning and sending off Elizabeth to work, I sat for a while trying to figure out what all has happened lately. Elizabeth has been hired for a job she wanted; I've been working at the Lowes Distribution Center and a bunch of other things of course. We are slowly seeing closure on our circumstances and seeing some light at the end of the tunnel as we decide what exactly we need to do to have a better and more stable future.
I painted this morning too. Something I love to do, but always seem too drained on inspiration to do. I painted a nice mountain scenery though not the greatest. You can find a posting of that on My wife and I's Instagram AdventureKerrs. It made me think about the path that people take to find the beauty of their lives. Going up and down catching small and slow glimpses of the future ahead of them. Weathering storms and hot days all in a journey to self discovery. Finding this higher calling, higher meaning to what seems like such a dreadful life. So we digress but slowly progress in our journey. We've gone through many of deserts and storms but I think it's been refining us.
Forcing us to grow into something more than we were, especially in the scope of being the best parents we could be for Oliver.
But this is where I will leave off on this post. Perhaps I'll elaborate more on this in a later post as I always do. Just trying to keep everyone up to date and give a small glimpse on what goes on in my mind and my life with my family.

We've all seen it on Facebook and the news. A gorilla was shot and killed for protecting and not protecting a 4 year old boy. This boy the gorilla was interacting with climbed over the railing for the exhibit at the Cincinnati Zoo and fell into the moat of the exhibit for a 17 year old Silver Back Gorilla.
