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.
