Changes on the Horizon
June is upon us. The hot days of summer are quickly approaching. The plants in the garden are still small but flourishing. I woke up early this morning to sit outside in the cool morning air and drink my coffee while listening to and watching the birds. The peace and the calm were so uplifting (I didn't say quiet; the birds made it anything but quiet).
June is going to be a month of big change in our house. Among other things my husband is starting a new position next week. He's been working third shift for, I think three years now (three quarters of little Abe's life), and him moving to days is going to drastically change my work schedule. It will also allow him to be home (during waking hours) much, much more. The changes should be mostly all good, maybe even great but they are change none the less and oh how uncomfortable it all seems. It'll be great to see him more but at the same time it's going to be a little weird (or a lot weird).
This month I really want to focus. I want to focus on smooth transitions for our family and I want to focus on rest. Yep, on rest. My mind is already so stressed out thinking about it all that while I want to make the most of the new beginnings I also want to just stop and be still as much as possible this month. I know, I have a four year old boy. I think I can still try and focus on rest. I started today with some great rest after all. One day at a time.
