I am a mama who craves the moderate seasons in life. The warm breeze of a new spring morning after months of chill and snow. The cool breeze of an autumn afternoon, leaves crunching underfoot and sunlight falling gently after months of sweat and heat.
It’s not the change of seasons that I desire – this year has been full of far too many changes for our family already. But the sense of something new, something peaceful. A return to routine and less extreme days as my husband returns to teaching at the elementary school I attended as a child. It takes a few weeks, but we settle in. Our daughter starts to adjust to both of us leaving for work as she’s dropped off at daycare.
Read the rest over at Mothers of Daughters? I’d love to see you there in the comments!
