So, I have been laying low on the blog writing for quite some time.

I feel that I have nothing to write about.

I haven't been out there exercising.

I haven't been doing anything interesting.

I have just been home everyday, being a Mom.

My DD2 has been accepted for post-secondary school. She is going for Culinary Arts. I'm so proud of her She is excited, yet nervous because reality is setting in. She's leaving home.

That's two that will no longer be under my roof. Not sleeping in their beds safe and sound. I know as a parent I had children to grow and let them go. It still tugs at my heart strings to let them.

There is profound love in the family. Understanding, laughter, joking, teasing, finishing each other's sentences. Don't get me wrong, there is also yelling, frustration and crying. Yet forgiveness is not that far in time. Hugs are BIG around here.

Needless to say, I am homeschooling my youngest daughter still. She is doing great with that. No more bully issues. No more major school drama. She is a silly girl too. She was calling me into the living room saying that she was going through 'Mommy withdrawal'. (We have an open concept house).

I have been moving around more lately. A bit more mindful of what I am eating. I have been cutting down on the munchies and I have started losing weight.

Loving that!

Today, I feel peaceful. The sun is shining through my windows. The clock on the wall is ticking and keeping pace with the day. I had a cup of coffee and am just sitting here typing. Thinking that the day starts with a calmness.

Have a beautiful, graceful day my buddies.

Let sunshine in your heart.

    Letting go is hard but a part of entering the next stage of life. Be graceful about it, they'll love you for it. BTDT.

    Lovely blog. Thank for writing about your family relationships and feelings as your family has grown and changed.
    Yesterday my 12 year old came home with a letter to his hero, me. It was beautiful and touched my heart. This morning when I wasn't happy with his lack of being organised for school I also added that I wasn't being kind. he replied with, "Yes you are mum. You are being kind because you are thinking about me and how I need to be organised!"

    Beautiful blog! Sounds like you're having a wonderful day. I know just how you feel about the kids leaving the nest. My son did his 4 years of college away from home in Wisconsin, I had hoped he'd come back to Chicago when he was done. Instead he is now in Minnesota, (8 hour drive) getting residency and wants to go to graduate school up there. I miss him dearly but I guess this is what we raise them to do, go out and build their own lives. Doesn't make it any easier on us Moms. Thank you for the sunshine!

    Hugs always,
