Today was a good day. One of those days where your bones are tired from the days goodness.
Judah and I woke up early to go to our first bible study together.
He cried when I dropped him off at childcare. He never cries, but today he looked at me with these huge crocodile tears in his eyes and kept saying "ah mama, ah mama". My heart was torn and I almost didn't want to drop him off. But I remembered the five years of working in the women's ministry and being downstairs when the moms would drop off their little ones in childcare. I was the one assuring the moms that their precious babies will be fine once they are dropped them off. That they will have so much fun and that they will forget their tears. So I took my own advice and headed to my study.
Judah did forget his tears, and for two wonderful hours I was able to talk to women.
Most of these women knew Scott and his family. I was introduced as "This is Scott Judkins wife Jess" or "This is Carol Judkins daughter in law". It felt good to be a Judkins. My heart sang because I belonged. When I picked up Judah he was playing "trucks" with another boy his age in his classroom. He saw me and ran over singing "ah mama, ah mama".
Ma petite moustache, we are together embarking on a wonderful Wednesday adventure. You will learn all about sharing trucks with friends and I will learn all about making friends and enjoy being a Judkins.
