24 Jun It’s Time to Let Go.
I’ll never forget lying there, about to be prepped for surgery. I was just minutes away from having my tubes tied. My days of having babies was about to end.
My doctor tried to console me, but I kept crying uncontrollably. You see, I loved being pregnant and having babies. I loved every single minute of it. He said to me, “Lisa, you know we don’t have to do this.” But I knew it had to end. I looked at him hard, through the tears, and said, “Dr. Moreland, tie ’em tight. Tie them real tight. I’m 41 and I sure don’t need any more babies.”
That’s the way I feel now. It’s hard letting go of my youth.
Although it’s time, I’m really not ready to let my baby go off to college.
Although I love our home of 25 years, it’s time for something smaller.
I loved my college days at Auburn. Being 20-something in advertising. A business owner, a PTA mom, an education activist, a wife. I think back on it all and think how lucky I’ve been.
But I’m at a crossroads in life. Time to move on, to look ahead, time to reSoul my Dancin’ Shoes! I gotta lot of things I want to do.
First stop: New York City!
