Exhaling

It is needed and often forgotten to do when one gets wrapped up in the chaos that life can bring forth. I have exhaled over this weekend; many times. It felt good. It felt cleansing. It felt invigorating. And, it has infused me with new energy and determination to succeed in my new endeavour of opening a day home and trying to balance the workload of simple life management.

So, thank you all for your supporting and encouraging thoughts. You all are my soft place to fall, knowing that I will be supported and pushed to continue on and even inspired to do things that I might keep on the back burner because it would cause too much effort to try. And thank you to my children for infusing me with love and laughter this weekend. The two of you are just the medicine Mommy needed to help get me out of my funk. The adventures that we went on, the laughter that we had and even the tears that we shared filled me with hope and strength and decision. The decision that I should listen to my heart because I really don't want to miss any more moments with the two of you in this stage of your lives.

Here we go folks! The send button is about to be pushed to formally recruit two other beautiful children to become my children's playmates and to give the comfort and knowledge to other parents that their precious loved ones are being well cared for in another's loving arms.

Did you press it? I hope so.

I wish you the best of luck in this new chapter. I know it will work out well, because it is so clear that it is what you want and what you were meant for.
