My youngest, Samantha started 6th grade this morning. She’s truly the baby of my family. Daniella who is technically the middle child was my youngest for 5 years before Samantha came along so in an odd way I have two “babies”.
I feel a little lost with everyone going back to school and I haven’t started work yet. They’re all at ages where they don’t need me anymore like they did when they were younger. Over the summer I was able to run errands or go to stores without dragging everyone with me. I have that freedom. So it’s not like I’m counting down the days they go back to school the way I used to do when all they did was fight with each other all summer.
Alyssa is off starting her 2nd year of college and Lelly is a high school junior this year. It’s so hard for me to believe we are here at these different stages of our lives. In 3 days I’ll be starting a new career. To combat the nervousness I pray. Pray that Samantha will have a great year or even just take it day by day and let her today be great for her. I pray that Lellys schedule is perfect for her and her classes are the ones she wants.
While I’m in that mode I ask The Lord to guide my steps and be with me as I begin this new chapter in my life. He was with me all through the interview so I know He’ll be with me on the job and that I’ll be working for His glory. The Lord will also be helping my family adjust to the new normal with me back at work again.
I hope everyone has a wonderful school year whether it’s a start of something new or the return of an old routine.
