I didn’t realize it would be this hard to return to life, and get on with my life after the Trek. I really do miss my family, and hope they are all doing well. The best of McBride Shamrock luck to all of them. While wallowing in my sadness this morning, I started writing in my journal and drew parallels of my kids at home and my kids on the Trek.
I LEFT MY KIDS, SO THAT I COULD MEET MY KIDS.
I SHOWED UP WITH THE MEMORY OF MY KIDS, PREPARING TO MAKE MEMORIES WITH MY KIDS.
MY KIDS GREW UP A LITTLE WITH OUT ME, AS I GREW WITH MY KIDS.
I TRY TO TEACH MY KIDS THE VALUE OF HARD WORK, AS MY KIDS LEARN THAT HARD WORK IS VALUABLE.
I WOKE UP KNOWING I WAS GOING TO SEE MY KIDS, BUT WOULD BE SAYING GOODBYE TO MY KIDS.
I EAGERLY AWAITED THE HUG OF MY KIDS, AS I HUGGED MY KIDS GOODBYE.
I DROVE HOME TO MY KIDS, AS I DROVE AWAY FROM MY KIDS AND OUR HOME.
I EMBRACED MY KIDS, AS I MISSED MY KIDS.
I MUST NOW RETURN TO LIFE WITH MY KIDS, AS MY KIDS RETURNS TO THEIR OWN LIFE.
I LOVE MY KIDS, I LOVE MY KIDS.
