Today my daughter started PreK-3 and my son’s first day for 3rd Grade was yesterday. The eyes of excitement when going back to school shopping and anxiety approaching their first days of school. Beginning of new school-year extra-curriculars and all other sorts. These are the moments I cherish. These are the moments when I feel truly blessed. My sprouts are my everything. They keep me wanting to be a better “Me”.
As Fall approaches, I search for new ways to become a better “Me”. To be the Grown-Up that my sprouts look up to and aspire to be. Their little new shoes, backpacks, and beaming smiles keep my heart full of joy and full.
I am in a much better place than a year ago at this time. Distractions of separation, divorce and loneliness no longer compete with the attention of my sprouts. They are number one and everything else falls second.
I scribe on this blog much less of coping and the struggles of divorce, as I am in a “happy” place and no longer am consumed by my status of “Divorcee”. As my title is a happy and successful “Mother of two”. Which I wear as a badge of honor and not as baggage that dims my future of finding new love.
It is just the little things that matter. The milestones in my sprouts lives that make me complete.
