Monday, a new week full of so much promise. Katie started back at school today, her last term at school as a student, ever. She has so much to do over the next four weeks but she is determined to enjoy it and not begrudge getting up each morning to go to school. She is so over school and so ready to fly.
When she told me this I told her how when she was a wee baby, a very precious and much wanted baby that we had waited a long time for, I decided that I would not complain about broken nights and lack of sleep because I knew she would be my last little baby and I wanted to enjoy and appreciate every moment of it. And I did, I mean I did get tired but I was so grateful to have the opportunity for that kind of tiredness. I know, weirdo me. I loved it though.
I guess it's about being in the moment and not hoping for or worrying about a future that may or may not be as we imagine. It's good to have a plans and dreams and it's also good to be truly where you are and take joy in what you find.
Have a lovely week.
