Over the river and through the woods


After careful deliberation earlier this week, I did finally decide.

I went with my heart. And this morning, we boarded the train.

Baby is getting used to riding the rails. She knows the drill and, except for a little volume control difficulty, is a perfect travel companion.

We’re missing Daddy something awful right now. I always feel out of sorts when he is away. Just not myself. I know I’m a big cheese ball but he completes me. That’s just how it is. I’ll feel unsettled and more than a little bit anxious until we’re all back together next Sunday.

But we’re here with Grandmom and Poppop and Aunt K now¬† and they will get us through this week with smiles and laughter and support. As I watched Baby reconnect with each of them, my mind wandered to what we’d be doing at home, on our own.

I made the right decision.

Hope you’re feeling right in your decisions today too.

Happy Saturday.



  1. I’m so glad you followed your heart! And I know what you mean about missing your husband, I feel the same way when mine is away. Have a wonderful stay at your parents!

  2. I like to think I would be strong and “complete” on my own, but when my hubby is gone I quickly realize that he makes life so much better. Have a good time visiting family! I found you on the FNF Blog Hop and am now following you. Would love if you would visit my site!
