This is one of my favorite quotes:
Courage doesn't always roar; sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day, saying, "I will try again tomorrow." To me, it is a great message of hope. I'm hoping this will be that "quiet voice" for me, so that when I feel like I'm done or that I have failed, I can say that I will try again tomorrow.
Right now, my challenges are motherhood, wife-hood, teaching, not losing myself in those first 3 things, trying to hold on to my faith and hopefully being an ok human being. I have good days and bad in all of those things.
My maternity leave ends on Monday- and I am worried about going back to school. I took a full year off after J was born- and have only been teaching part time this year. I still feel like I'm losing out on the motherhood side of things in order to go back to teaching. I know that working doesn't make me less of a mom, but right now, it doesn't feel like it will improve things either.
More later- J is calling my name and B has the hiccups, so I should head off and see about them.
