Happy New Year! I always feel the New Year is bittersweet. Saying goodbye is not always an easy thing, and a new beginning can also be equally as hard. I am an optimist. I look at the year that has passed as a time for reflection, a time for me to look at my life and relationships. I try to reevaluate my direction and set new goals and expectations for the New Year ahead.
Caroline has settled into her radio show with such ease. Her sound advice has helped so many people. At the same time I find that she has been an inspiration to so many stay-at-home moms that have found themselves coping with an empty nest. What a positive way to put her experiences as a wife, mother, and friend to good use.
As I watched Melissa in the car listening to Caroline's radio show, I can't help but see how nervous she is about calling Teresa. I have to give her credit though, that didn't stop her from calling. I have felt the same way myself. I never know where a conversation on the phone or otherwise is going to end up with Teresa. Melissa's goal was to get the kids together and she stayed focused. How lucky those kids are to have mommies that are not letting their differences stand in the way of making their kids happy. It was well worth it, I was tickled when they jumped into each other's arms as Antonia opened the door.
