For 10 years a joke receiver.
For 10 years a car teacher to my own children.
For 10 years a discusser of life situations.
For 10 years a prayer over drivers that needed one.
For 10 years a laugher, a crier, a discipliner, an understander.
For 10 years a momma. A car momma.
I didn't realize this new chapter in my life was going to start so soon. I didn't even see it coming until the end of the last school year. And now... starting on Friday, I will drop my girls off at the sitter and head to the city I work in.... alone. I didn't really feel too emotional about it until right now, this very moment. While I know I'm going to miss the conversations, laughter, singing, and those three little voices in my backseats, this new chapter will give me some time to just be. Do you know what I mean? To just be alone. Quiet or Loud. It'll be my choice each day as this new chapter begins.
