Stop the World...I want to get off!

Today at work, we've had some major changes which created a very stressful day.  I work about 40 minutes from home, which is no big deal for me, seeing that I am from the land of long commutes (Los Angeles).  But the drive down in the morning is to gear myself up for the long day ahead, but the drive home is for me to unwind and get my mind and heart where it belongs...hopefully.  Bless Dani's heart, she always can tell as soon as I walk into the house when I've had a bad day, because she immediately gets on her chores, and asks me if she could fix me something to eat!  What an angel.  With all the problems, tantums, meltdowns, etc. there is this sweet angel floating around my home trying to take care of her mama, when I am the one who should be taking care of her.  There are so many times I wish I didn't have to work, to be home with her, to be her champion and get the education out there about alcohol and pregnancy, but like I said, I have to work and that's okay, I work for a wonderful company. But I am at the point in my life that I am craving peace, like I am sure we all are.

I most certainly am finding myself savoring whatever peace I can find. Maybe it is age, or just the paths we have chosen. {{{Hugs}}}
