I realize now that I waited much longer than I should have to make a much-needed change in our home – now that it is done.
Mostly because it was an incredibly hard thing to do as a mother. It was a long long walk to the letting go.
And also because I’ve had to come a long way with these type of boundaries – even when they were very very necessary. They don’t always come easily to us hippie types.
And, in my case, I deeply care about my husband and daughters, and I care about our home being the cozy, welcoming, safe place we all deserve.
So it took some time but we made it.
It’s taken me awhile to write what I needed to – even though it’s good. It still took some time to process.
It’s been almost a month.
My son is happier with his dad so far as I can tell.
We are now a family of four – plus Wonderpup and Zoo. And, oh my word, at the difference. . .
Where there were many things going on before – a great number of which my husband and I weren’t even aware of – now our house is calm and open and joyful.
The girls wander in and out of my room and office during the day while I work and they are working on their own projects as well.
And some days we take the day off and cozy up and watch Netflix for the day instead.
Our whole family had a restful holiday weekend for the first time in forever as well.
It is how it is supposed to be.
And I am thankful.
Happy Wednesday, y’all.
Grace and blessings.
