Hard to believe……

I still can’t believe it.  What once seemed like such a far destination is now at my door step.  I know that I should be happy and that this is a natural progression of life.  Truthfully i am happy, but at the same time there is a bitter sadness.

My oldest daughter graduates from elementary school tomorrow.  She will soon be embarking on a fantastic journey.  One of self discovery, and a new awareness of the world around her.  There will be so many firsts, and not all of them will be good.  I think she is more ready than I am, but I can’t let her know that.

If I could tell her one thing, or give her only one piece of advice it would be this;  Remember, this too shall pass.    I know sometimes that you are going to feel like it’s the end of the world as you know it.  Life still goes on, and nothing lasts forever.  It’s up to you as to how long you let things affect your life.  Take control.


Hello world!

Everyone is always asking me how I do it.  How do I raise 5 kids, how am I able to handle the day to day, how do i work full time and still make time for the kids….and on and on.  Basicly just alot of hows, and even some whys thrown in every now and then. This is my attempt to answer the how and why, and your chance to “try on my shoes”.

Happy Reading!
