I had the greatest time with my younger son shopping, singing, eating dinner together and just getting to spend time with him. This time is so precious that I want to make the most of it. He being a teenager, will have some fun with Mom, and tolerate certain things, but this is slipping away from us quickly and the importance of Mommy times are becoming less. Sigh… He is the last one to leave the nest and I wish I could stop the clock!
How can someone feel so blessed and so tortured at one time? I’m not sure. All I know is that it takes patience and time to overcome injuries and accept your limitations and what is right for you, versus what you want to be able to do. I’ve never been good at the whole waiting thing, and I pray for the strength to make it through another Holiday season! I guess when you have had what seemed like the most perfect Christmas’s in the world that is allot of pressure to put on yourself!
My hope is everyone’s Christmas is filled with joy and love. it’s never all about the gifts under the tree, but the time you get to spend with the people you cherish.
Merry Christmas 2013! See you in moving forward with the book in the New Year, I just don’t know which NEW YEAR! Hopefully by 2016? It was crazy talk to think this could be done in a year! It took me a full year to start getting my brain back! Happy New Year anyway!
