Unsure vs Sure

I have been pretty busy lately, hence my lack of posting. With all this busy-ness comes a continual sense of unsure-ness. Starting with my not knowing what to blog about. I started writing blog posts the last three nights and each night got side-tracked. Obviously, nothing substantial to share since the posts never got published.

So back to being unsure.



The past few days, I have been unsure about getting Connor to school on time, getting lunches made on time, getting clothes washed (let's just forget about folding) for Bill and the kids, getting organized to hold a meeting for our school's Harvest Festival that I am chairing this year, getting information for our swim team for personalized products that I need to have ready for next week, coordinate all swim, soccer, swim clinic, birthday party, private lessons, speech therapy, school district evaluations........so on and so forth........blah..........blah...........blah.



Amidst all of this, I have been made surprisingly aware of




for sure




that


1. My daughter is much more beautiful than I realize, growing up fast before my eyes. In looks, in attitude, in every way a young girl can. It makes me so happy to see who she is becoming. She is smart, confident and happy. All the "bad", seems to fade every time I stand back and watch her, just be her.


and

2. My son actually loves and respects his sister. As much as the two of them have "at" each other every single moment of every single day that they are together, deep down Connor really likes Hannah. He just brought home a paper where they had to describe themselves, their family, their likes and dislikes. The last question was: I AM PROUD OF: and he wrote - my sister's swimming. WOW! He cares.



So that's it. My quick thought for today. As I am off to do whatever-else-it-is-that-I-need-to-get-done, I revel in the fact that maybe,

just maybe,


my kids won't need therapy after all...


with me



when I eventually go


when I am old and crazy.

I don't know how you do it all, Gini! And those kids of yours are amazing. There are a handful of kids out there that make me want to have my own and yours are in that group.

You are so right about how much Connor loves Hannah. It has been sweet to watch them together.
