Yesterday marked the beginning of the home stretch, as yesterday was the first day of the last of a busy 4 months before Christmas holidays; it was the first day of the last of a long 4 months away from someone special.
With the home stretch comes the energy of excitement manifested, and fervent anticipation, as plans materialize and whatever it is you’re waiting for becomes closer and more real. The home stretch is when you can look back and realize that you’ve made it through the longest, hardest part of it, and if you can do that, you can do this. And while I’m trying very hard not to wish my time away and to live in the moment here, I can’t help but get at least a little enraptured by the awesome that is the home stretch as I think about all that I’ve been waiting for.
Here’s to a cheerful, fun-filled and stress-free home stretch!
