Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the "present."

A Mom's personal struggle....
Just LOOK at those eyes, look at that SWEET little face! There is so much PERSONALITY in this little girl! Tomorrow is a day I am truly dreading, its totally and completely silly, but for me it's not. I have SO enjoyed these last two weeks and, try as I might, I have been telling myself not to think about the fact that she is going back to school tomorrow. BUT I can't help it, I want her home, and when she said to me the other day that she wanted to stay home my heart just jumped. I know she would be fine if we sent her back, she loves school, but she loves being home too. The last two weeks she has been HEALTHY. The last two weeks I have not felt the stress of getting her to school on time; rushing her to wake up, eat breakfast and get dressed, and picking her up on time...it may not seem to some a big deal (its only down the road for goodness sakes!!), but having her here with us has been such a JOY. Glenn doesn't want to send her back either, but I know ultimately the dicision lies with me. She IS learning there, but I know she has learned HERE as well this week, and she has had more time to see her friends! So, today I will struggle and pray that the path we chose will be the right one; the one that will help her to thrive and grow in learning and in love.
