Thankful Thursday

Thankful isn't the right word to describe what I'm feeling this week, it's not enough.  Do you know that feeling you have right before you are about to leave for an awesome vacation, or see an awesome concert, or whatever it is you really love to do?  That anticipation that makes everything else around you a little blurry.  The world is easier because you have something amazing to look forward to.  In whatever amount of time it is til that wonderful event finally comes you are weightless and nothing can get you down.  That's how I feel, except multiply it by, like a thousand.

Like I said, everything is a little blurry, except the fact that I am now counting the days until I enter a new life.  With all new beginnings there comes endings.  I thought about that a lot today.  I will experience the end of my career path with the company I am leaving, and it's quite likely I will see the end of some friendships I have developed over the last two years.  There was a lot that I was willing to give up to make this change though, so in the grand scheme of things, that's not so bad. 

I am thankful for perspective.  I know what it's like to be a working mom.  I can appreciate what the other women in my life go through that will continue to be working moms.  I also know, from experience, that it's not right for me, not in the sense that I've been doing it anyway.  I hope that weeks, months, and years down the road I will remember this feeling I have now.  

What are you thankful for this week?
