My mom arrived on Sunday to help the ship stay afloat this week, and she is going to stay to help us when Ben comes home. Friends have been checking in. Mimi's bags are packed. Our work peers are stepping in for us. We are so lucky. The "village" is coming to our assistance, and we are so grateful.
My nerves are starting to kick in, so I have jotted down some meditations and thoughts on how to keep my cool during this transition. I am reminding myself that transition is the key word - I will soon find a new normal, and I am strong enough to get through whatever comes my way. Maybe things will be just like last time, maybe not. No matter what - I have experience, humor, support and God on my side.
This is will probably be the last entry until Friday......my last entry as Happy Stone, party of three! So stay tuned for photos --- as we introduce our newest Stone....Baby Ben!
We love you all!
