For the past ten days, I have spent every day with our kids and family. We have had long naps, visits to cousins, friends, grandparents, great-grandparents and to our favorite 106 year old Aunt Iris. It’s been an easy transition from one chapter to the next in life. An interlude of sorts.
Last night, Hunter came home from practice to sit down for supper. We talked about this week’s two home games and I felt a flood of peace knowing I am going to be at his games this week and all season. I would not have been around for these moments if it weren’t for this new chapter. When I tucked each of the girls into bed I told them I was leaving early today before they awake but that I would meet them at Hunter’s game tonight and then we’d go home together. Despite leaving behind many treasured clients, connections and fabulous friends, this new chapter starts now, filled with promise, an early prairie sunrise of bright light and knowing new chapters can start with the feeling of peacefulness.
