Man, oh man, life is crazy. AKA-Parenting is not for wimps. I want to sit down and write a creative blog post and tell you about my latest inspiration, a pile of fabric.
In real world, I want to write 'the diary of a wimpy parent'. As in, it would be so much easier to just bury my head and let life go on, but that is just not who I am. I'm simply feeling rather overwhelmed with the approaching year-end of school. I know it's a few months away, but with a junior and a senior in the house, they are counting down the days. Last week S. was awarded a very significant award, called the Circle of Success, the only junior to receive it this year. There was a very intimate banquet to honor the students and teachers that were being recognized for their significance in the school. So proud. Tonight is the last soccer game for O. in high school and will be Senior Night, a farewell of sorts. She also got her college acceptance letter yesterday from her number one pick, so happy for and proud of her. There is just so much excitement going on.
While they are both so happy and supportive of one another, tears soon followed at the thought that what they have had for so many years together, is about to change. Drastically. To even be a bystander is difficult, to be the parent can make one a wreck, it all comes back to knowing that I, too, will have a drastically different life in days to come. I embrace change and see it as a chance to grow, and I think that they will too, when the time arrives. But man, oh man, until it happens, I'm expecting roller-coaster ride living.
May creativity be my escape.
Words of wisdom, encouragement, and prayers much appreciated.
