This has been such a busy time for our family. Adjustments being made across the board. It makes me appreciate the simple things.
A family dinner with all of us present. A driveway chat with the neighbors. Having all the laundry done. And being creative with enough time and energy to share it with others.
The pieces of this fell into place without me even realizing it. I’ve been a bit of an emotional wreck on and off over the last 3 weeks….not even going to sugar coat that one. The changes were scary. I have taken comfort in my little bubble of security for the last decade or so. Pizza on Thursday, Fish on Friday. Routines and schedules grounded me…ground all of us. More than I ever realized. I honestly thought of myself as spontaneous and I am…to a point. I just didn’t realize that as the years ticked past, my way of thinking and of life became more rigid.
This quote spoke to me. As much as I am enjoying my new career, I do morn for what was, as silly as that sounds.
I truly do like working in a school again. This job is definitely different than my previous but so am I and that’s ok.
ACK! See super emotional. Chatty and over sharing. Not my usual style.
Back to the journal page…. The little bit of lace just felt like the perfect finishing touch of the page.
It’s funny because if you’d have told me that I’d be spilling my guts on this journal spread and in the post when I got started I’d have told you that you were crazy. Well, look who’s a little crazy now. LOL
