Life is in the fast lane. As of yesterday, I have one month to finish this semester. My girls see me come home from work, do the tasks that need to be completed on the home front, and then sit down to do homework. They never complain. I worry and feel guilty about the time that I spend on homework, then I look at my girls and they open their arms to give me the biggest hug. There are moments that tears fill my eyes thinking about missing time with them, but then I take the time to remind them why mom went back to school for another degree. Both girls assure me they understand and will always love me. It is at those moments, I know I can stay sane and finish this last year of school.
It is my priority to make mom and daughter time with each of them. This includes taking our dogs for walks, heading to Starbucks for a coffee treat, and watching YouTube videos. Unfortunately, there can be times when they ask me something while I am doing homework, but they have to repeat it to me because my mind was wrapped about homework. The girls never mention or get aggravated about the repeating sentences. They keep me sane.
The girls get me and are my biggest encouragement to continue on this path. God sure has blessed me with two daughters and I will never take that for advantage. Easter break is going to be good for family time, celebrating He is Risen, and welcoming a new family member. We are so excited to share with you! 🙂
