I didn't mind that my chores were taking 3 times longer to complete than usual. I'm just so glad that I didn't miss the moment because I was in a hurry or out of the house.
May will be here quicker than I know it, and I will be called away by school and possibly even work. I'm looking forward to it all and I know that these actions will help my family to be successful. I know how much I've regretted the time I wasted in the past and how often I prayed that I would have another chance to complete my education. I watched all the pieces of the puzzle fall into place within a week of our decision to move to Cedar City so that my Bachelor's degree could be pursued while we wait for other facets of our lives to pan out. I truly believe that a way was prepared.
Nevertheless, sometimes, when I ponder the small but memorable daily Ollie triumphs I will miss and the quiet moments with my baby that I stand to lose, my resolve weakens just a little.
