This is my last week of maternity leave. It would be really easy to get upset, and start complaining about going back to work (not gonna lie, I'm pretty nervous)……but instead…..I'm going to spend some time counting the blessings we have:
-a gigantic bag of baby clothes for Lydia from the mom's group at church
-a successful road trip, time with my dad and cousins
-my rockstar of a husband giving a killer presentation last week at the California Music Educators Conference
-the fact that my biggest complaint is that I'm going back to a job that I love (first world problems, right?)
-our Keurig, seems minor but that hot cup of coffee each morning? A treat.
-afternoon walks with our little one
-a visit with one of my dearest friends and her twins……I still can't believe she did this with two at once!
-fun mail days….I have gotten some GREAT stuff in the mail that I can't wait to share with y'all
I'm so thankful for this time I've had with Lydia and all the great things in our lives, and am going to remind myself of that when I drive off to work next Monday!
