I LOVE THE HOLIDAYS!!!All the good food, the drinks, and the good mood everyone seems to be in here in NYC. Lights are already up, some went up a few weeks ago, the windows up and down 5th Ave are done up in all Christmas fancy and everyone's spirit is just UP. S
I was able to roll with the punches, some caught me totally off guard while others I was a little bit more prepared for. The idea of raising a man all by myself scared the crap out of me at first but I'm doing it and so far so good, he's still alive! I go into work where I am the youngest practice supervisor and am able to wrangle people much older than me who weren't used to having management in 3 years and then get a 20-something boss and a VERY demanding attending and bring our team together and get the practice up and running more efficiently and keep everyone smiling. Proud of our progress.
I look to my little guy and my dream for him doesn't get any smaller just because it's just the 2 of us now rather than the ideal 3. I still expect nothing but his best and the best for him, be it school or anything else. Raising a decent man is my goal and facing this alone really hasn't been so bad, I know that we'll hit roadblocks along the way but I'm giving my 100 and expect no less from him, and then you know there's nothing like a Praying Mama. We gotta make so why not do it with some pride and a smile.
I'm grateful for my parents who have really helped me out in dropping Chunks off at school and picking him up when things run late at the office. It takes so much pressure off of me to know that when I can't be there he's still with family that will take care of him until Mommy gets home. Peace of Mind
The most important Ah Ha! moment came when I was alone in my room, Chunks gone to bed, and it was just me and my thoughts. I took in everything and decided no matter what- I'm happy! I'm not where I want to be but I am on my way and things can only get better from here, right? So I'm thankful for life, health, family,love, mental strength, and grace.
Wishing you an early Happy Turkey Day! When it's your turn at the table, what will you be most thankful for?
