Caregivingliving- Feels like Deja Vu

Kimmy
And so I went back to work with students this past week. While I enjoy engaging with others and my life feeling like it was two years ago, this is a time of stress.

The deja vu feeling is remembering when I had small children and it took so much to get out of the house and pick them up on time. My day is often hectic and it is a challenge to get us both out by 7:30 a.m. I have not had small children in many years and I am working on a plan to reduce my stress.

In all of this, the most awesome part of the day is when I pick my husband up at the day program. He is so excited, very much like my children when they were small. My crazy day dissolves as he says, "Kimmie, my girlfriend, I am going to marry you one day." He has a smile that's broad and infectious. The traffic I just fought, the student challenges. It does not matter in this moment. When my children were small, they warmed my heart very much the same way when I picked them up from preschool. The deja vu is the feeling of being tired then exhilarated when you see  some one you love and loves you to the moon and back.

Deja vu.
