Thankful Thursday (12/5)
Today, I'm thankful for the option to change my mind.
I do it a lot. The Husband can verify this.
I want one thing, and then when that doesn't work out, I decide on something else.
Or, I make a decision and someone convinces me to go the opposite direction.
Over a year and a half ago, I decided I'd delete my Facebook account. I had lost Hadley, lots of people were pregnant or bringing home babies, and I just couldn't take reading their good (and very happy) news on a daily basis. I needed a big 'ol break. So, I got rid of it. I stopped reading about other people's lives and lived my own one day at a time.
In the meantime. I had Jack-Jack, our small family moved in with my parents, and life has taken another road than I had planned.
I often think of and miss our friends and family where we used to live. I try to stay in touch via texts, emails, and phone calls, but they're still so very far away.
My mother-in-law suggested that I consider jumping on the Facebook bandwagon again. She knows that I miss everyone, and she said that people would like to see how we're doing and catch up. My main concern in doing that was that I really just wanted it to be about giving a bit of insight into our lives now and see what's up with my friends and family.
I'm just not really interested in much else.
I also needed to set boundaries for myself. I purposed (fully acknowledging that I will mess up or "forget") to not be on it when I'm with Jack. I want to be really with him when I'm with him, ya know?
So, I set up a Facebook account yesterday, and already I've caught up with a few dear friends and loved ones. Yay!
And, already I've messed up and gotten on when I was playing with my boy. In my defense (ohhhh justifications are fun, right?), he was completely adorable, and I wanted to capture his cuteness and post it for all to see. Sigh.
