I am away on a 3-day business trip. While I'm enjoying the peace and quiet that allows me to sit and write on my beloved blog after a two-week hiatus, I am also missing my family.
I woke up early this morning and missed their footepts, the smell of their hair, the chubby cheeks and the good-morning kisses. During the lunch break I wondered if they went to the park, and if they wondered where mommy was all day. During dinner I talked about them to my colleague who, fortunately, is the mother of triplets and shared her own stories of her children. And now I am sitting in my hotel room. It's their bed time and I'm wishing I was there to read them a story and tuck them in bed.
During the past few months, I've started to reach a balance that I was not feeling before. I am more centered. More at ease with being a mom. More patient and more in touch with who I am as a woman, professional and mother.
When I started this blog, I didn't really know what it was I wanted to accomplish. I just knew I needed to put what I was going through in words. I think I know now.
