End of an era

This mothers day will go down with a few top stories including:

-sleeping in till 615am
-top of the morning with a poem and chocolate from hubsy on the kitchen table
-Finn and I walking home from church in the rain-him in all the puddles-all the way!!
-a band practice with my beloved Crows where I finally broke the news that I would be leaving the band-as it has become too much for me with this present adventure of child-formation to keep on in a "workin' band"!
Thats apretty big deal after some 15 years.

Now bathed and sleepy, decked in mismatched but cozy pajamas,
i feel a deep satisfaction in letting go.
The familiar is going to be a very rich and rewarding and lively memory.

Now the road takes a small turn and I await the creative pursuits that lie ahead.
For now-
its a whole lot of early morning walks with a smiling baldy perched on my back-drinking the world in with 7 month old eyes,
and the chatter of a boy who loves a laugh and goldfish cracker who loses himself in the Sandbox World every wakingday.
And its rediscovering a more complex connection to the man who saw enough in me to say-I Do.

Onward ho.
here's to the great (and daily) unknown.

Good for you, for knowing what you need and following through...sad in parts, but "real". Enjoy the new adventures!

It seems life has many labour pains of letting go and birthings of new experiences. You take both with such grace. Good for you!

What a wonderful way to end my day - following along the wisdoms of a very special young lady. How lucky am I!
Love, Nana
