Tough Day


Today was my first day back to work after almost a month away. I am going back part-time for a bit. It was almost surreal to go back after that long away. The weather was completely different when I was last there--it was still hot. Today I had to wear a coat and it was cold, so it felt like I had been away even longer. When I got to my office, it was just as I had left it, and there were some tough memories of what I was doing and what was going on when I was there last.
It was just a tough day. I don't even feel like a part of things there now. I know it is only the first day back, but things were definitely off.

Oh, and I turn 39 tomorrow. Believe me, I am NOT excited about this birthday. This is not where I thought I would be for this birthday, literally or figuratively.

I am glad you got through your first day back. The hardest part is over. Remember-- you have two choices: die at 38 or turn 39 kicking and screaming and clinging to your H2O wrinkle reducing cream. I think you made the right choice :-) Besides, I guarantee you will laugh when you get the birthday card I sent! Call me later!

The first day back is over. The second day will be easier....and each day after that.

If it's any encouragement AT ALL, my 40's have been the best of my life by far.

Still thinking and praying for you...

Hopefully the days will get easier for you each and every week.
