CMT Alphabet Update

Reality check. I so underestimated this September. Or I suppose I could say that I overestimated September. I have ideas. I have good intentions. And I'm overwhelmed. I started a new job at school. Teaching art and handwork. It's a dream-job in many ways. It does need organizing, though, and planning. Lots and lots of prep work with cutting felt and threading needles. My hands are angry with me right now- in revolt and very numb (aka scary). I am trying to rest them.

The school year started and my son has first grade. He is melty in the afternoons (wore out) so he needs extra Mama-time. My girl has her first year of middle school. We are navigating those waters together.

A big part of my journey is forgiveness. Mostly for myself. I get so angry when I can't follow through on plans and ideas. My limits feel like walls.

I do my best. I need to celebrate success. The alphabet will continue. As will caring for myself and my family. All good :)
