I have made some serious observations the past year.
1. All of my hats are off to single mothers who bring home the bacon and raise a family!
2. When you work full time, you don't have too much time to worry about the small stuff. All of my energy goes to my family first and then my job. That has been a huge eye opener for me.
3. My children are just fine. One of my biggest fears about working was how this would all affect my kiddos. All of that time I spent with them during their younger years stuck somehow. They are still happy and strong and thank heavens still remember right from wrong (even though I am not there every second to remind them).
4. I am so thankful for where I am right now. There truly is a time for everything.
