The first day back has come and gone and we all survived. :)
It's such a hard thing to do to walk out the door and leave those sweet faces behind, but you want to know what helps?
The amazing network of fellow mommies and friends and family and coworkers that rose up to surround me and encourage me and remind me that, even though it sometimes breaks our hearts, we can do the hard things in life. And we don't have to do them alone.
So thank you. For every email, text, call and virtual hug via social media. For sending me off with a sweet card from the kiddos (Husband), and for coming to town to celebrate birthday week but also to give me an extra cushion when I really needed it (Mom). For going out of your way to stop by and see me and check in (amazing colleagues). And of course thanks goes to Nanny B for taking excellent care of my littles and for sending me photos throughout the day so I would miss them a little less. If it takes a village -- and I believe firmly that it does -- then I am a very lucky lady indeed, because my village is the best.
I am sad to leave my babies, but I am so grateful for the reminder of how awesome people can be. I feel so very supported and that's a true blessing.
We are going to be ok. :)
