Today was my first day back to work after a wonderful summer at home with Ellie. I had several breakdowns last week and a big one yesterday. But, this morning I got up feeling ok about it all. I think it was because of a wonderful message my sweet friend Julie sent me on facebook and then followed up with a text this morning. She basically said we aren't bad mommies because we work. She knows there is going to be some child that will be in our rooms this year that we can minister to in some way. I think she's right. She also left her sweet baby to go back to work today. We made it through day one, Julie!
I know I had lots of people praying for me and that sure helped too!
Then I came home to the sweetest, smiliest baby around! I just love that girl. I love her daddy too!

Now, it's off to bed so I can be somewhat rested for Day 2...
