Rush.

9 Apr

My long weekend is over. This afternoon, as I was excitedly playing with the kids and reading stories to them, I was reminded of tomorrow’s bittersweet goodbye again.

Goodbye as in me leaving for work, and spending about 10 hours away from the kids. Tough job.

And that I would be in a rush tomorrow to work, attend and make a presentation at the meeting, and accomplish what I need to for the day. Then rish back home to be with the kids, have dinner, play with them, clean then up, and tuck them in.

Long weekends are fun but, at the same time, they cause anxiety when they’re about to end. Separation anxiety from my loved ones. But I am grateful I have this job.

Tomorrow’s another day.

Sleep tight, y’all.

Blogging from my side of the globe,

Daily Prompt: The New Me

23 Jan

I see the “new me” when I look in the mirror. The mommy version.

I’ve only been a mom for two weeks (plus the 40 weeks of pregnancy) but I feel like I’ve gained a world of knowledge only mothers are entitled to. There is still a lot to learn as I go along the way. I am preparing myself each day, reminding my heart that learnings, whether good or bad, are experiences that equip every parent to face any situation. They are designed to make us stronger, wiser, more giving and forgiving.

It’s never going to be easy, this I know. But it’s going to be one heck of a ride that I would surely enjoy and treasure.

I love being Marcus’ mom!
