Sometimes I wake up amazed.
My life has been turned on it's head. In a good way, but still, it's not the life I was leading just a few months ago.
I wake up curled up in my bed trying to stay nice and warm - because it's cold! I live in a beautiful historic home in Massachusetts. How did I end up in New England? I am a CA desert girl.
I live in an amazing community, with friendly people and friends that are always there to help.
There have already been three snow days - which thrills my son. He is learning about seeing your breath and mittens and warm hats :)
I have an amazing job. I am trusted with an amazing responsibility and am so proud to be doing what I am doing. How did I get here?
I am a mom of two boys. Two. Mr. A loves swimming, legos, hugs and Santa. He is thoughtful, smart, funny and loving. Baby D is mellow, sweet, cuddly and a mama's boy.
I wake up in a strange state as a mother of two with an amazing job in an awesome community with wonderful co-workers living in a beautiful house and think - how did I get here?
I am so glad I did.
This post was inspired by the novel The Mill River Redemption by Darcie Chan, about two estranged sisters who are forced to work together in order to uncover the hidden inheritance by their mother.
