I will survive

It took all the strength I had
not to fall apart
kept trying hard to mend the pieces of my broken heart.

Oh admit it, you were singing along! It's ok. If it makes you feel better, I sang the song while I typed the words:)

BUT back to my point. I wanted to let everyone know that I did it - I survived!
I made it through the day without my baby girl.
Now don't get me wrong, it was extremely hard. I thought about her constantly.
I worried that she would wonder where I was - why I wasn't with her. But at the end of the day, we were both ok!

We started our day out a little earlier than normal, but no worries, Becca was happy, as always!

Here we are before Mommy totally lost it it was time to leave!

Becca's first morning with Mrs. Natalie!

Here's the result of her first day at the sitters! She fell asleep Friday night at 6:00 and didn't wake up until 8:00 Saturday morning:)

I love my sweet girl more than I could have ever imagined, and while it's hard to leave her, I know she enjoys going to Mrs. Natalie's and playing with all of her new friends!

I want to thank everyone for the prayers, cards, phone calls, and flowers. It made my first day back at work so much better. And while I'm sure there are many more tears to come, I now know that, I will survive!

Ok, now it's your turn. Leave me a comment below sharing how your first day back to work was! I love hearing other peoples stories - it makes me feel normal:)

Last weekend was my first time back to work. my first night of work, I was there from 4 till midnight. I knew ben was at home with lillian just going thru the nighttime routine without me. we slowed down between 7-9 and all I could think was I had so many things I'd rather be doing. then the drinking crowd came in and I really felt out of my element. I realized all I wanted was to be home with my husband and my baby. it's awful. but I know there are so many thing I have to be thankful for, like the fact that I get to be with her all morning before school. and then as soon as class is done, I can be back with her again. and sundays will ALWAYS be ours; I will never have to miss church. we are lucky women. simply to miss our girls so much means that we are blessed to have them at all. =)
