The Next Chapter
As I wander, watching the last of my things being packed away, I have way too much time to think. Am I ready for this? Just how different will things be? Will my kids still like me when I live right near them? How much fun will I have watching this new child grow? Oh yeah, lots of fun.
Intertwined in all of this looking forward, is a lot of looking back. Am I ready to leave? They'll go on without me. Will they still like me the next time we meet? How much fun will I be missing out on? Lots and lots.
The biggest thing I have realized with all of this wandering and thinking is…… I am blessed.
I am leaving behind some of the most wonderful, clever, kind, creative, and special people I will ever meet. My life the last few years has been made better by them.
I am going to some of the most wonderful, clever, kind, creative, and special people that I am lucky enough to call family.
I am making this journey with an amazing man who has put up with me for years and years, yet still manages to see the good parts of me.
What more could a person ask for?
Thanks everyone for the best going away birthday party ever.
See ya on the other side.
