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.
