Into the See

A letter to myself.

Dear Self,

See, you did it!  See, it wasn't so bad.  You made it through the first semester, you even did quite well (so the signs all say). 

See, it went by fast.  The moments rolled by like colored balloons, into the sky and away.  It was challenging.  And frustrating.  And exhilarating.  I know you're still a bit confused and anxious, but one step at a time.  The path in your life has always been made clear when you wait for it.  Just wait for it.

Now a month, a month to be just Mom.  To see how your children have changed over these past blurred weeks.  See them, open your eyes.  Disconnect and relax.  The hard work was for them, now the time is for them.  Don't waste it

Can't you see your life is wonderful?  I know you can.

Love,

Me
