I can't believe it's been almost a week since I posted here! Time is flying. Between the fun and the busy-ness and the busy-ness and fun I am reminded again of the feeling that I'm just barely clinging to some precipice by my fingernails.
Today I am very grateful for a rainy, chilly, relaxed morning and time for me to catch up on some things while the kids relax and watch their favorite YouTube videos (Minecraft for Marisol, and video games for Gerry).
I am grateful always for the opportunity to grow through parenting. I am grateful for my intense child who always pushes me far beyond my comfort zone and who is like my own personal in-home psychologist.
I am grateful for perspective that comes from being a parent for years and to know that everything really is a phase and that the only constant is change.
I am grateful for fall and Halloween and building excitement and a family theme for costumes.
I am grateful for our furry family members and the love they add to our lives.
I am grateful for amazing conversations with my 8 year old and belly laughs with my 5 year old.
For all of this and so much more I am incredibly grateful.
Gratitude from this past weekend (I'm a little behind!)
Friends and kittens - a great combination:
A cool fungus (fungi??) I saw on my walk with Yoshi. Love my walks with Yoshi.
Today I am grateful for:
A busy, rainy day.
Time my kids get to spend with other kids.
Three days of Gratitudes to catch up on = mucho pictures. I am grateful for the natural ebb and flow of life, the ups and downs, the joy and sadness, the awe inspiring and the mundane. I am grateful for the busy times and slow times, a home we love and lots of time outdoors. I am grateful for beautiful weather and sunshine. I am grateful for our puppy Yoshi, who makes me smile and be more in the moment every day. I am grateful for Yoga and creating new habits.
