Back to School

You know that commercial..."It's the most wonderful time of the year" ...that has the dad and mom dancing through the office supply store because the kids are back to school?

Well that was NOT me.

I was sad. Blue. Melancholy. Whatever you want to call "bummed out beyond belief" is what I was.

This was the first summer in my life that I was able to be a "stay at home mom" (if you will) for my son and I loved every minute of it! (despite the reason I was able to stay at home)

I really enjoyed spending time with the ol' kidlet and now that he is gone I really miss and cherish those silly lazy days of just laying together on the couch watching a movie while avoiding the 110 degree sun outside.

Remember as I have said in the past, I never say "Why me" about this disease.... but I do admit to saying "Why now"

and I also admit to always trying to learn the lesson in everything.....so maybe, just maybe.. The "Why now" was to have the beautiful gift of being able to stay at home with my kiddo while he was still at the age of actually "Liking" to stay home with me?

Just a thought that kind of brings a little peace to me. You never know what life is going to bring or when it's going to "bring it" so I am learning and truly trying to live in the moment and enjoy each one as it passes.

I must say this was one of my best summers ever, despite it being my first summer with this disease.

Pretty soon summer and it's lazy day memories will be a thing of the past with September here already and the holidays following soon behind.

Things will get busy and it will become harder to remember to live in the moment, so I thought I would write myself this little blog to remember.

Hope summer treated you all right too!!

Peace and Love to all ~

  1. My gift from scleroderma was time with my kids, too... I've been home now for 2+ years (tried to keep working at first) and I have to say there is always a silver lining, or an open window.... Would love to chat sometime!
