I made it to read at preschool on Friday. Whew. I felt so much better and Brenna was so happy. The kids enjoyed it and I felt that I had fully redeemed myself. You know when you're in the moment and everything feels so big? I was feeling so low, but it really was no big deal in the end.
Now we're winding up a great weekend with Palm Sunday services and an Easter egg hunt at the in-laws. The best part of it all is that it is our school district's spring break, so we're off for the week! The kids are going to daycare for a day or two so I can shovel out the piles of laundry and filth that have overtaken our home. Then we'll spend 5 days together with no interruptions of work or other daily grind-type activities. I'm so glad for a break, it was definitely time for a break.
Happy spring to all. I fully plan to enjoy this Holy Week with a grateful heart. My life is so full and my family is so blessed.
