We do a good job with family nights on Monday, and reading scriptures during dinner. That is going well. I make sure the kids are at the table at 4:30 pm for study time, then music practice. So the details are in place. But I feel a little absent in my own life sometimes. I know things will get better come April, when my schooling is finally over, but I don't want to get caught up in the "in only 6 months ..." game. Again, absence.
So tonight I am trying to forgive myself and get present. Because I remember when I was an at-home mom, with no school and no job, I still had feelings of inadequacies and guilt. It is my way.
