Dreft Detergent and Change

I was staring observing a woman today in Target as she loaded up on infant baby clothes, one of those jumpy chair things and Dreft baby detergent.  I'm assuming she was pregnant?  I didn't really notice because I was transported back in time not so long ago, yet long enough year wise, that I was doing the same thing.  Minus the jumpy chair thing.

So I distinctly remember being 9 months pregnant washing tiny clothes that would soon clothe a little person I had not yet met.  It was such an incomprehensible thought that I was actually about to become a mother. Something I thought I would never do.  I never felt brave enough and I still don't :)

Now both children are situated in school and appear to be settling into it nicely.  Some days anyway.  With that brings another season of unknowns and possible changes.  I will be honest here and admit that I am scared.  I have gotten used to a schedule that has a bit of flexibility to it since I have been, for the most part, a stay at home mom.  But, that doesn't necessarily fix the furnace, pay EEE's  (extra emergency expenses) or get the cars repaired.

This might have a lot to do with fall and the fact that EVERY SINGLE YEAR I feel the winds of change starting to sweep over me.  As in, OK summer is over - now what happens??

Therein lies the beauty of faith, or in my case, the lack thereof.  Some things for me to consider...

Thanks for listening!  :)
