The first step in what is sure to be a crazy ride.
And I'm feeling ready.
I allowed myself a week of worry, stress, sadness, and freaking over every tiny details and then I took the advice of a wise mentor and "put it where it goes." Which isn't in my forethoughts. I let myself feel it and then I tucked it away.
I reminded myself that the God that brought our family through, well, through all He has, isn't leaving us now. Isn't leaving Gabe.
While I will never be capital R Ready, I am ready.
And that's enough for me.
