So on this rainy Monday, I am reflecting about the beginning of the school year, Fall and change. Like many people who have school aged children, this time of year is a real transition; getting back into the routine of early mornings, helping with homework, all the paperwork to sort from school and really being on top of your game for the kids.
It also leaves a very different feeling at home. A quiet house may provide the opportunity to return to unfinished projects. It is a reprieve for some. For others it may be a sense of loneliness and loss. It is a good time to focus on oneself and prepare for the holidays and cold months ahead.
With mixed emotions and empathy for other parents out there, I look forward to what I can accomplish this season!
