I was really trying to be optimistic about going back to work
but inside, I was weeping
the anticipation of saying goodbye to these faces each day, made my heart sink
Wednesday came with a meltdown
some sweet new friends knew it was Jason's birthday week
and graciously offered to babysit so we could get a date
one that was desperately needed
thank you Happy Hour at Red Robin
and thank you to my incredibly sweet and encouraging husband
I felt like after that night, I had made a turn in my anxiety
and the Lord gave me some sweet scripture the next morning from Matthew 6
"But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself.
Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. " Matt 6:33-34
And just overnight, instead of dreading leaving the family all day, I was able to just enjoy
being with them until it was time for me to leave.
so Thursday Aidan and I hung out upstairs for a while
Friday we went to the park, racing the rain to get there
And today, spent some time at the mall as a family
and I'm feeling much better about leaving to go on my shift in a couple hours
On a separate note
Our new neighbors know how much our family loves Christmas
so they decided to surprise us with some early decorating on our door
a good reminder that Christmas is just around the corner,
so if you're looking for some super cute gifts
head on over to the Happy Days handmade Holiday Market
i know you'll find something you love
Have a great weekend!
