Suddenly things are different. You see things in a new light. Your ideas have been altered.
It used to be that if I had an entire week off from work it was a big vacation for me. A whole week! What would I do with myself for all those days?
Today, I have one week left.
And a part of me feels the panic of time slipping away...only one week more before works starts back up? One short short week out of 3 1/2 months off? My perspective has changed.
But I'm doing everything I can to change it back. To think of this week like I used to approach it...a WHOLE week! Just think of everything we can do with our week together!
I will choose to be thankful for this last week of free time with my girl and focus on how fortunate we continue to be. Because along with perspective, I like to think we have a certain ability to choose how we are going to view a situation.
I am blessed. I have a job that I truly do enjoy with people who are inspiring, intelligent, giving and kind. Charlottle will be looked after by people who are loving and warm and will make her feel safe.
Sure, there are going to be days like last week where I have my meltdowns. Major ones. Where once the floodgates open, the tears don't stop. Because it IS hard. It's hard to think of not staring at this sweet face all day long...
But I am going to choose to believe that we will be just fine. We'll find our way through this new transition. Perspective.
So, with that...there may be a lack of posts this week because hey!... we've got a whole week off!!
