I am sharing my heart with you today. I would say since August of this year, my blogging has been less than amazing, or even average. In August, I started working and even though it is part-time, it is work, and I am not sure I am good at part-time. I am always all in and with teaching, even when you are not at school you are thinking of school, working on lessons or grading papers. That is just one part of the puzzle.
In October, I visited my Momma in Texas and saw some signs that not all things were right with her care, her mind and so much more. I begin to fret about this and start the process of figuring out what would be best for my Mom. In February, there came phone calls from concerned friends and family. I made an emergency trip back to Texas and this was the turning point, of putting her in a nursing home. I am thankful my school let me miss a week of school and how supportive they were and continue to be during this difficult time.
In March, I returned during my Spring Break, I packed up her apartment, and she is now full time in the nursing home. I will be honest with you, I have sought the help of a counselor, I am never ashamed to speak with someone to get through a hard time, and my feelings and emotions had become overwhelming. I found myself crying daily and feeling at a loss.
I finally am beginning to see a light at the end of the tunnel. I am prepared for two steps forward and one back. I know, there will still be difficulties, but I am beginning to feel better prepared for being the parent to my Momma.
With my business, I have been on autopilot, I desire to get back to being more active, and posting better, having more live FB videos and doing what I love.
Later today, I will post things about the upcoming catalog and much more. Be prepared for more regular blogging. I welcome prayers, hugs and whatever you feel comfortable sharing with me.
