Life just keeps on happening and I’m just along for the ride. So much going on without any certainty. These moments in limbo used to drive me over the edge. I still have that initial impulse but now it’s looking more like an adventure. I don’t know if I didn’t have kids that I would be embracing this concept. But I know they are relying on me to be the firm foundation as we travel through the uncharted waters we are headed for. If I am viewing it as an adventure and just another chapter in the story, then so will they.
Letting go and grieving loss have never been my strong suit. I vividly remember lying in the back seat of car when I was 9 years old crying my eyes out because we were moving more than 1 hour away from my current friends and my Grandparents. I really thought my world was coming to an end. I don’t have to view change and moving that way anymore. I also can model healthy grieving and change for the boys. It seems overwhelming sometimes but more and more it’s an adventure.
On a lighter note the boy’s new adventures include their new scooters. They are so big!
