My little boy joined the nursery class at his school today. These are big days for a family:
It’s the end of toddler groups.
It’s the end of us staying in pajamas until lunchtime (we’re really going to love school holidays for that!)
It’s the start of the school run
It’s the start of polishing shoes
It’s the start of calling people ‘Miss’
It’s a whole load of new friends to be made – for us both
It’s the beginning of the rest of our lives.
There’s a decision to be made on how you feel about days like today. I can be sad for how quickly the time has gone where I had him all to myself, and nervous about all that will change. Or I can be excited about how he’s going to grow, and what I’m going to do with my new found ‘me-time’.
There are a lot of unknowns about the next few months for us as a family; but because I have a God I can trust, who I know has my life in His hands, I can look forward with nothing but confidence and excitement about the future. In fact, we all can – His hands are big enough!
So. I’m getting out my new metaphorical book bag and polishing my shoes. Ready for whatever is next.
