Living the Dream

Well, it's official, I am a stay-at-home-wife-and-mom...at least for now... AND that is something I have always very much wanted to be! And yet I find myself with mixed emotions and expectations. Part of me is elated and can't plan enough things to do AND part of me is nervous about what comes after this... Well that part has pretty much been narrowed down... I've talked with and been interviewed for several opportuntities and by next Friday I will likely have made my decision, but I won't be joining the ranks of a working wife and mother again until later in November...and so, finally, I can take a deep breath and live the dream. I'm hoping in the weeks I have ahead I can get to do some things around here that I never get time for, but also I want some time to recharge and refresh... I've never really had that. I started working when I was 15 and have never pressed pause on that one since. It's good to be out of the work situation I was in, but I find it's taking me some time to come down and de-stress...old thoughts and concerns die hard. For those of you who've been praying me through this, thanks...and keep on praying if you don't mind, I need ya:)

Sherri... I have been reading your blog and praying for you for several months now. Enjoy this well-earned rest and take some time to recharge your own batteries.

Memories are made of this.

Enjoy each one.

I can almost hear you singing that, Donna! ...I miss your blog...ever think about reviving it?!!

You're sweet to even inquire if I ever think of reviving my blog.
I have had moments where I just burst with "I need to tell the world this thought"....and then I shrink into myself once again, keeping my thoughts to myself. Maybe one day, I will be brave and step forth into the blogger world again, YOU would be the first person I would tell.

I love to watch a few "cooking" shows, they make it look so delicious and easy. I have just brought home Martha's cookie of the month recipe....Banana-walnut chocolate chunk cookies...ohmigosh...my mouth is watering just thinking about them.

Enjoy the Fall-ing of the leaves season...what a beautiful sight.
