I’m participating in Five Minute Friday. I’m writing off a word for 5 minutes, unedited. Join us by linking up over here.
Truth. What is my truth?
Truth is I miss being in the classroom. I miss the kids. I miss the teaching. I miss the relationships and the connections. Truth is the pull of the classroom is stronger than ever.
Yet, the truth is I feel like the classroom is a step in the opposite direction.
Truth is I feel so at peace, so at home, so very content when I’m with my own daughters. Being a mom is the most important thing, and I am so grateful for their presence in my life.
Yet, the truth is that there are moments, days, when I feel like I’m losing myself. When I know I give every ounce of me to them, and I feel like I need some time to be ME again.
Truth is that I’ve loved my husband since I was old enough to feel true love. He is the one great love of my life. Funny, kind, generous, hard-working.
Yet, the truth is that this year has been a struggle for us. Two kids, busy jobs, different goals for our family. We are working it out, but the truth is that it has not been easy.
Truth is I wouldn’t trade this life for anything. Truth.
